Yes, I’m not producing these Boston sidecar variants for this town’s nabes like I used to, but it’s fun to share a new iteration when I create one. Way in the way back I lived in Allston for a year, and didn’t like it much: too dirty, too rowdy, too many party-hearty college students. It’s become quite the place for cheap ethnic grub since, but I feel like I need to teach a lesson about Boston to these temporary residents who are in Boston today and maybe not tomorrow. The color of this drink would appeal to a post-pubescent, but the taste is much more nuanced and adult-like. Rite of passage in a glass, hah!
.75oz Spanish brandy (Soberano would be good)
.75oz rhum agricole (love that Rhum J.M from Martinique)
.5oz triple sec
.5oz lime juice
2ds cranberry bitters (Fee’s)
Combine in shaker over ice, shake for 15 secs, strain into coupe or lowball with ice ball.
