My mashup of the Japanese and the Sidecar.
1 12 oz Cognac
12 oz Orgeat
12 oz Curaçao
34 oz Lemon juice
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 twst Lemon peel (As garnish)
1 pt Sugar (For rimming the glass)
Shake with ice, strain into a sugar-rimmed cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist.
I pondered the orgeat-curaçao duo in the classic Mai Tai, and this combination led me to make a mashup drink. For a base spirit, I considered Cognac, and the 1862 orgeat and bitters Japanese Cocktail came to mind for the former ingredient, and curaçao and lemon Sidecar sprung into my head for the latter. For a name, I dubbed this one the Saidoka as the Japanese word for the motorcycle accessory.
