There’s something about Spring that makes you go ‘between the sheets’ The ‘Between the Sheets’ starts off as a Sidecar but splits with a measure of light rum and skips the sugared rim.
I did a mini twist to the cocktail by using Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum to give it some added sweetness to the smoothness of Ciroc VS French Brandy; which really hits it off in the cocktail. The sweet vanilla and brown sugar in both liquors cuts through with the citrus of Lemon Juice and Triple Sec which ties together in this delicious drink.
I definitely suggest pairing this drink with an after dinner chocolate and cheese board for that perfect “Drunk Night In”
For my visual learners, check out my TikTok to see exactly how it was made! ✨
Here’s what you need to make your Between the Sheets cocktail ✨
- 1 oz Brandy (okay @cirocvs French Brandy )
- 1 oz Rum (I went to the @captainmorganusa Spiced Rum)
- 1 oz Triple Sec
- 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
- Garnish: Flame an orange peel over the top of the drink to express its oils, then discard the peel before serving (or add your own flair like I did and put a lemon wheel on a mini clothespin )
Now here’s how to make it…✨
Shake all ingredients in your shaker with ice. Pour your cocktail in a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist or a dehydrated lemon wheel (like I did!)
