Between the Sheets

Another relative of the Side Car, but with a sexier name and better ingredients. There are other versions of this drink that omit Benedictine and use rum instead, but two base spirits can confuse the palate; this version is more interesting.

1 1/2 ounces VS Cognac brandy
1/2 oz. Benedictine
1/2 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a burnt orange peel.
