The One with the sidecar - Friends tribute

“How you doin’?”. Friends was without any doubt the most popular sitcom of the 90s (The series was originally broadcasted 1994-2004 with many reruns after that decade). It’s impossible to count the times I laughed out loud with Chandlers jokes or stupid things done by Joey, Rachel or Phoebe. A few months ago they announced a special ‘reunion’ show (The One Where They Get Back Together) with all the actors looking back on this great adventure. 

When I received a bunch of samples from the Lakes Distillery, I just had to make my own tribute drink with their blended whisky which is called ‘The One’. This is a blend of The Lakes Single Malt with malt whisky from Islay and Speyside and grain whisky from the Highlands. Stone fruit and spices in the nose, honey-roasted nuts, dried fruits and wood in the mouth. The Islay whisky adds a gentle smoky touch. Could that BE any better? 

About the cocktail… The Cosmopolitan was already taken by ‘Sex and the City’, so let’s release your inner Ross or Monica and go for another “Oh. My. God” (*) glorious coupe. 

The One with the sidecar

50 ml Lakes Distillery The One Signature Blend whisky
25 ml Clement Creole Shrubb (I you don’t have this, try a good quality Triple Sec or Curacao)
20 ml Lemon juice

Add everything to a shaker with lots of ice. Give it a good shake and fine strain in a chilled coupe. Serve with copious apero bites. As much as possible because Joey doesn’t share food !!!

P.S. Delicious bites dish by De Schuur Holsbeek.
