Before making this cocktail I rubbed the orange outside the glass and kept in freezer for 10 minutes and then poured the cocktail which made me enjoy this cocktail more as while I was drinking I could also smell the orange flavor. This drink taste bit sour but make it sweet you can use Spanish brandy which is sweet and goes really well with orange. No matter what brandy you choose for this sidecar cocktail the important thing for this cocktail is that make sure that you balance the sweet and sour taste, especially too much lemon juice can destroy the cocktail. Because sometimes the lemon comes quite sour so taste before adding lemon to the cocktail. Make yourself feel refreshed by trying out some fruit flavoured drink such as porn star martin.
