This drink ranks among the classics, first surfacing in France around 1922 and a favorite at Harry’s Bar in Paris. It is a great take on a simple brandy drink enhanced by Cointreau and lemon. The Sidecar has the ability to be refreshing and warming at the same time. A perfect Sunday afternoon companion!
