This cocktail is a variation of the traditional Brandy Sidecar.
Calvados is an aged brandy made from a variety of apples grown in
the Normandy region of France. An inexpensive Calvados that is brown
in color will add a rich flavor to this sweet-sour cocktail.

Superfine sugar, as needed
1 ½ ounces Calvados
¾ ounce Beretzen Apple Liquor

Use a lemon wedge to wet the rim of a Martini glass and twirl
