Today’s cocktail is the legendary Sidecar, which according to some reports was invented in the early 1930’s at Harry’s Bar in Paris for a patron who often rode in the sidecar of a motorcycle. Like the martini, the Sidecar has experienced a renaissance. The Sidecar offers a very appealing sweet-sour combination, along with a nice kick. Enjoy!
