Chip Tyndale’s Sidecar

Chip Tyndale, Dutch Kills | New York

Taking first place in our recent blind Sidecar tasting, Chip Tyndale‘s traditional recipe asked for two ounces of Remy Martini VSOP, ¾ ounce each of lemon juice and Cointreau, a teaspoon of 2:1 demerara syrup, and an orange twist. The cocktail delighted the panel immediately. “It leaves you with that taste in the back of throat that makes you want to go back for another sip,” said William Elliot.
