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.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

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% ABV (52 proof).
