Between the Sheets

This series highlights the International Bartenders Association (IBA) The Unforgettables cocktails. I have decided to work my way through this series of cocktails to investigate the classics as I teach myself mixology and build out my home bar.

This is a rff of the Sidecar, it seems. The addition of the rum is welcomed. I used Mission Spirits white. It worked well.

I enjoyed this cocktail. I think I would like to play around with the ratios a bit. I looked at a few other recipes and it looks like there are other approaches to this. My thinking is I could dial this in just a little bit to make it a cocktail I really enjoy. Perhaps some simple syrup to sweeten it ever so slightly.
