COCKTAILS | Get yourself Between the Sheets

BTWNOne of the better cocktails we’ve tried in the last few weeks is ‘Between the Sheets.’

Taken from an old recipe used in the 1930s at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, Between the Sheets is a very lovely Sidecar-inspired cocktail that happily adds gin into the mix.

Built of equal parts gin, cognac, Cointreau (or triple sec) and lemon juice, we thought the Sheets was a drink that really has no season. Obviously the climate in Jerusalem is considerably milder than the northeast’s, but we thought this drink would be as pitch perfect at a June garden party as it is at a November supper.

3/4 ounce cognac
3/4 ounce gin
3/4 ounce Cointreau
3/4 ounce lemon juice

Combine the four ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice, shake vigorously and serve in a cocktail class.
