    Loved it - although I would probably cut back a bit on the sugar>

    I'm looking for a Thanksgiving cocktail and, Giada, this one's perfect! Much better than the original Sidecar. The extra citrus pizzazz really makes the difference. One note: make sure to buy the best sour mix with real juice.
