This recipe comes to us from our friends who manage The Cocktail Artist blog. We met them at a Virginia Spirits event in Washington, DC. Inspired by the stunning Shenendoah Valley, they crafted their version of the classic "Side Car" with spirits from two Virginia distilleries: Catoctin Creek, Vitae Spirits Distillery.
