Deauville Cocktails

Hubby just described these as 'Sidecars with Calvados', and I guess that is pretty much what they are - equal measures each of good Cognac, Calvados, Cointreau and freshly-squeezed lemon juice.  We sweetened it with a little gomme sugar syrup, and added a lemon twist.  Shaken over ice and served in a martini glass, this was a classic example of the alchemy of a good cocktail -all the ingredients combine to taste of something different from the individual parts.  Very delicious, and quite potent - hic!
