Cocktail of the Week: Chelsea Sidecar

One of my favorite summer cocktails is the Tom Collins: gin with just enough sweetness and fizz to be even more refreshing. Here's another higher-octane drink that could be its kissing cousin.

Chelsea Sidecar
Makes one cocktail.

2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

Combine the ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass.

Cheers!
