The Boston Sidecar is a cross between a Daiquiri and the original Sidecar. It is also essentially the same drink as a Between the Sheets, the difference is the choice of lemon or lime juice.

It is a fun sour drink that is rather easy to remember, making it a good one to add to your drink repertoire.


  • 3/4 ounce light rum

  • 3/4 ounce brandy

  • 3/4 ounce triple sec

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  3. Shake well.

  4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  5. Serve and enjoy.

How Strong Is the Boston Sidecar?

There is a lot of liquor in the Boston Sidecar so it should be no surprise that this is not what we would consider a light cocktail. If made with 80-proof rum and brandy, this drink would have an alcohol content around 26 percent ABV (52 proof).
