Meyer Lemon Sidecar

It's citrus season here in Houston, Texas, just in time for the holidays. At the top of my "favorite" list is the Meyer Lemon.  Lemon chicken, lemon pizza, lemon vinaigrette, lemon curd, lemon water... and Meyer Lemon Sidecars.  YES.  If you want to get in the holiday spirit too, make these.  Now.  Fa la la la la la la la la.

Meyer Lemon Sidecar
1 ounce Meyer Lemon juice
2 ounces brandy
1 ounce Cointreau
Meyer Lemon slices

Cut a slice of lemon and rub along the rim of your glass.  Place sugar on a plate and coat the rim of the glass.  Place the glass in the freezer.  To a shaker or mason jar, add the lemon juice, brandy, and Cointreau. Add ice and shake for a few seconds.  Strain into your glass and add a slice of lemon.  Crank the Christmas music up, kick back on the porch, and enjoy!
