What makes a traditional Sidecar cocktail ‘winterized,’ is the addition of Pimm’s Winter spirit; a brandy-based winter warmer with notes of zesty orange and a mix of rich spices.


  • 1-1/4 ounces Pimm’s Winter
  • 3/4 ounce applejack
  • 1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce Cointreau
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Lemon zest twist to garnish


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the lemon twist, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Vigorously shake the mixture for 35 seconds and then strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish the drink with the lemon zest twist and then serve immediately.
