Occasionally a brand contacts me with a product so good, I can’t help but to write about it. This is one off those occasions, and this pomegranate sidecar wouldn’t have been as great as it was without Molassity’s pomegranate molasses. The molasses added flavor, tartness, color, and depth to this cocktail. This cocktail is a classic, and adding pomegranate flavor gave it a nice holiday twist. Brandy cocktails always mean the holidays to me — there is just something about it that tastes like Christmas and Winter.
What I used for this Sidecar
This cocktail is a mix of cognac or brandy, lemon juice, and orange liqueur. I used my favorite St. Remy French brandy, Grand Marnier, a fresh lemon and a heaping teaspoon of Molassity Organic Pomegranate Molasses.
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
