Cuban Sidecar

John made a cocktail last night, which has become something of a Friday night ritual. We are always up for trying a new cocktail, so last night John tried the Cuban sidecar. The verdict? It was a winner, and it looked nice too. Another bonus – it went really well with our snack of brie topped with fig & balsamic jam that we bought at a farmer’s market in San Diego last fall (from http://www.jackiesjams.com).
