About the Recipe
The Sidecar cocktail has been around at least since prohibition. Created at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, it was named after an eccentric customer who often rode in the sidecar of a motorcycle during WW1. It combines Cognac, the premium Cointreau French liqueur, and fresh lemon juice. Don’t use inexpensive triple sec to make a Sidecar, in general they are too sweet. Also, using freshly squeeze lemon juice makes a big difference in this recipe. Many drinks come and go but the Sidecar has stood the test of time to become a classic and there’s a good reason, it taste great. Best served ice-cold.
