Complex and extremely well-balanced, the Sidecar is deemed to have been created in 1921, with the Ritz Paris later making a deluxe version in 1923. This is an iconic cognac cocktail with an enchanting story. It is said to have been named after a motorcycle sidecar owned by a gentleman in Paris, it was then later popularised in London – truly a tale of two cities.
