This sweet and colorful cocktail is 9 Restaurant mixologist Gennarose's twist on a traditional Sidecar. Instead of the typical cognac, this drink uses Maker's Mark — a favorite of Drink Editor Maryse Chevriere.

Quick tip: Gennarose says that shaking well is essential for any drink that contains sour mix to create a nice froth on top.

Ingredients

  • 1½ ounce Maker's Mark
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • Dash of sour mix
  • 1½ passionfruit purée
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Directions

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients except for the garnish and shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
