“It’s a classic that no one seems to order… if they only knew! A Side Car is a delicious balance of strength, sour and sweet, and it is so simple to create,” said Rowland. “Fresh ingredients are always my first priority, and the Patron Citronage adds some bite that the extra splash of orange juice balances out. I’ve never had anyone order a Side Car; however, if someone is unsure what to drink, it’s usually one of the cocktails I like to surprise them with.”
Kellie won the 2012 Wave award for Nightlife at the Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival and she also won the cocktail global contest within the entire Marriott International chain that same year.
