The Gentleman's Sidecar

The Gentleman’s Sidecar

So I’m not a gentleman but still enjoyed this sidecar at Purple Rain in Duluth, GA. Grand Marnier with Hennessy cognac is a superior combination with lemon and orange juice.

I’m guessing at measurements, so play around with this to suit your own tastes.



  • 1 1/2 oz Hennessy cognac
  • 1 1/2 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
  • Maraschino cherry
  • Slice of orange


  1. Lightly muddle the orange slice and cherry in your glass
  2. Add ice
  3. Build the drink with the cognac, Grand Marnier and lemon juice and stir
  4. Float the orange juice on top
