SIDECAR COCKTAIL Recipe

The Sidecar cocktail is traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur (I take Cointreau) and freshly squeezed lemon juice. The exact origin of the sidecar is unclear, but it is thought to have been invented around the end of World War I in either London or Paris. The drink was directly named for the motorcycle attachment which was very commonly used back then.
