Between the Sheets

Between the Sheets is a cocktail consisting of rum, cognac, triple sec, and lemon juice. Its sister cocktail is “Maiden’s Prayer,” which substitutes the rum out for gin. In the 1930s, Harry MacElhone from Harry’s New York Bar in Paris originally created the drink as an alternative to the famous Sidecar cocktail, this time with a heavy pour of rum.

  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec
