Sidecar

The Sidecar serves as the foundation for many of the most popular cocktails of the last century: the Margarita, the Daiquiri, the Cosmopolitan, and the Kamikaze, to name a few. The cocktail originated in Paris shortly after the first World War.

The appellation of this cocktail is said to have come from its originator, who always traveled in a motorcycle sidecar. It consists of Brandy, orange-flavored Liqueur (such as Triple Sec) and lemon juice, shaken with ice and strained into a cocktail glass.

Tips Edit

  • David Embury, who claims to know the drink's inventor, suggests an 8:2:1 ratio.
  • Robert Hess suggests a ratio of 4:2:1, and insists on Cognac and Cointreau.
  • In practice, most customers apparently expect a brandy-based Margarita.
  • Steve Jaffe offers a K.I.S.S. approach by simply exchanging the brandy and sugar rim for the tequila and salt rim in your favorite Margarita recipe to maintain a parallel flavor profile when introducing your Margarita drinkers to the Sidecar.
