From the bartender’s corner – Balalaika

That was an interesting name for a drink. I always thought a balalaika is one of those Russian triangular looking guitar like instruments. The drink though is a variant of the grand old Sidecar.

The original formula called for equal parts of Vodka, Cointreau and Lemon juice. I do not enjoy tarty drinks too much. So, went with a 2:2:1 combination. That was just about right for me…
