5. Between the Sheets

5. Between the Sheets - KITESSENSU


      The origin of the cocktail is usually credited to Harry MacElhone at Harry's New York Bar in Paris in the 1930s as a derivative of the sidecar

      However, competing theories exist that claim the cocktail was created at The Berkeley in approximately 1921, or in French brothels as an apéritif for consumption by the prostitutes


      The drink is similar to the sidecar, differing only by using less cognac and adding rum. The Maiden's Prayer is variously known as an alternate name for the Between the Sheets, and as a different drink using gin instead of rum and cognac, and adding orange juice to the lemon juice


30 ml White Rum
30 ml Cognac
30 ml Triple Sec
20 ml Fresh Lemon Juice


Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
