WASHINGTON, November 30, 2014 – Cold winds and snow create the perfect excuse to stay snuggled inside with a warming cocktail. From Washington’s Bar 515’s is this Sidecar, a cognac-base cocktail that’s spiked with a hint of cinnamon and cayenne. What makes this drink stand out is the homemade fig puree.
For those who can’t get to Bar 515 in person, you can make an approximation of the cocktail at home, though we are certain there’s no substitute for ordering one at the bar where the muddled fig is crafted.
