I’ve always compared the sidecar to a brandy margarita, but it contains fresh lemon juice instead.

Fill a cocktail shaker 3/4 full with ice cubes.

Pour in lemon juice Cointreau and brandy.

Cover and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds until the outside of the shaker becomes cold and frosty.

Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a wedge of lemon.
