Between The Sheets

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces Brandy
  • .5 ounce Bénédictine
  • .5 ounce Cointreau
  • .75 ounce Lemon Juice
  • Flamed Orange Peel (Garnish)

Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the orange peel. Optional: Rim the glass with sugar.

This drink is a relative of the Sidecar. There are other versions that omit Bénédictine and use rum instead, but two base spirits can confuse the palate; this version is more interesting.
