The Tramp Luke Nero will be out and the town tramps Mario Diaz, Miles Davis Moody, Jonny Makeup, Jefferson Hendrick, William Cullen and Mynxxi White will be causing some trouble. Fun, sun, booze and a water sports. Your summer will never be the same! If you don’t believe me check out the video below!

Mix This: The Sidecar

May 23rd, 2012 — 5:06pm

As I was sitting at Cole’s talking with Brent Falco one evening recently (the Bar Manager extraordinaire who I’m sure you’re familiar with, and if not you need to head down there right now!) a nice lady ordered a Sidecar from her. She asked if there was anything she could use instead of Jack (!) because she had been drinking them in more of a club setting and the place she frequented used Daniels. Brent didn’t even bat an eye, and made her and amazing Sidecar–sans said Jack/with Brandy, and the difference to her was immediately shown on her face.

This easy cocktail hails from around the prohibition era. Its simple mix of Brandy, Cointreau and fresh Lemon juice is simple yet extremely effective in getting you in the place you’d like to be. I stress that it should be FRESH Lemon juice and not a mix–I know some like to use a mix because some like this cocktail to be a little on the sweeter side, but you can add .25 of simple syrup instead or even sugar-rim the glass.

- 1.5 oz Brandy
- 3/4oz Cointreau
- 3/4oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- (optional sugar rimmed glass)
- Ice to tumbler, Shake and strain in Cocktail glass.

*BTW I know Brent’s take might be a little different than mine, so next time you’re in Cole’s ask her about hers. Its worth it :)
