Blue Sidecar

Blue Sidecar Cocktail with lemon peel garnish
I absolutely love the blue-green color of this cocktail. It looks so ethereal.

The sidecar is a classic cocktail that has been around since the early 20th century. It appears in multiple cocktail and bartending books, with more riffs than anyone can count. Just like a martini, the proportions are completely different depending on who is making it. This blue sidecar is inspired by the Sidecar No. Blue by Matthias Lataille, with proportions changed to suit my taste preferences.

I’ve been making a lot of egg white cocktails this past week because I’m currently curing egg yolks. This is a great way to add flavor to plenty of different dishes, so if you want a new experiment to try, I will recommend learning how to make cured egg yolks. All that means is that I have a jar of whites in my fridge than I need to find uses for.

How To Make The Blue Sidecar

blue sidecar ingredients

Ingredients

50 ml Brandy. The original recipe calls for cognac, but as this is a mixed drink there’s no need to splurge on something expensive.

25 ml Lemon Juice. Freshly squeezed.

20 ml Blue Curacao

5 ml Simple Syrup

1 small Egg White (about 25 ml, if we are going by what I poured into my jigger to measure it).

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and give a good 10 second shake to emulsify the egg white. Add ice to the shaker and shake hard for 15-20 seconds, then double strain into a cocktail / Nick&Nora glass.

Blue Sidecar

The blue sidecar is a simple variation of the traditional sidecar that replaces the cointreau with blue curacao and adds an egg white. The mesmerizing color makes it a great cocktail for parties and other forms of entertaining.

This Blue Sidecar is actually the first blue drink I’ve uploaded, and I’m at 72 uploaded cocktails as of publishing. Well, I do have the Blue Hawaii, but that’s more bright green if anything. I guess I’ll have to break out that bottle of blue curacao more often.
