Between the Sheets

The Between the Sheets likely originated in Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in the 1930s. It takes the Sidecar template of Cognac, orange liqueur and fresh lemon, but reduces the Cognac with the addition of white rum. The drink is strong and boozy, but the triple sec and lemon juice work to soften and brighten the cocktail, making it  very easy to drink.

Between the Sheets

.75 oz Cognac
.75 oz White Rum
.75 oz Triple Sec
.5 oz lemon juice

Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.
