The parents of Stiletto #1's boyfriend (I refer to him as Pistol #1)  invited us over for New Year's Eve this past year. They are a blast, creative, and oh so fun. They introduced us to the sidecar cocktail. (I didn't even know what that was.) Let's just say they are waaaaaay, more hipster than I am. I loved it and I enjoy their company even more, so I dedicate my version of the classic sidecar cocktail to them, the hipster parents Pistol #1.

  • 1/2 Ounce Cointreau

Let's not go there.

Make simple syrup fast by placing equal amounts of water and sugar in a glass bowl or measuring cup and microwave until sugar is melted. This happens very quickly. Be careful not to burn yourself as this is very hot.
