A bootlegger’s reimagining of the swanky Sidecar, straight moonshine added to cointreau, lemon juice, and cognac will rev up your engines for chasing down a great time from one mountaintop to the next.
1 ounce cointreau
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce cognac
1 ounce unflavored moonshine
Lemon slice (for garnishing)
In a shaker filled with ice, combine all the ingredients, except the lemon slice, shaking well. Strain into a Mason jar. Garnish with the lemon slice.
