Sweet Rewards

It has been a long week, and with another long one up ahead sometimes a girl needs a little break. I love Sidecars, and this drink while being just a touch sweeter had a wonderful refreshing edge, just the thing to wash away the week.

Mandarin Cocktail

2 oz Mandarin Juice Freshly Squeezed
2 oz Bandy
1 to 1 1/2 oz Triple Sec (depending on the level of sweetness you prefer)
dash of lemon juice

Pour all of these into a shaker and shake liberally with plenty of ice and pour into a martini glass. You could use a sugared rim if you are so inclined but I think this drink is plenty sweet all on its own. And the best thing is if you squeeze too much juice you can always add it to champagne for a very merry brunch the next morning.
