Sidecar cocktail with pomegranate
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.
