Tuaca Sidekick

I know how some people feel about their sidecars. I've read rants about traditional brandy based sidecars and I have to admit I prefer Tuaca sidecars. Here is a great take on that drink.

Tuaca Sidekick

1 1/4 oz. Maker's Mark Bourbon
1/2 oz. Tuaca Liqueur
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
2 oz fresh orange juice
3 sugar cubes

Serving glass : orange juice and sugar rimmed glass
(large martini,  margarita style glass, or just a pint will do)
In a pint glass, muddle cubes and juice, add ice, liquor and shake till well mixed and icy. Strain into glass with or without ice.

I hope you find this, Andrew Stevens.

I also found a great article on local cocktails and watering holes in the local 'zine, Black and White.

I used to love Tuaca, not that I hate it now but I don't drink it with much vigor. I recently was surprised to learn that it is not longer made in Italy, but rather Louisville, Kentucky. Kind of takes away from the monk story.
