The Sidecar Cocktail - It is said that this classic old school cocktail was named after the motorcycle sidecar that chauffeured an American Army captain, to and from his favorite Parisian bistro, during the first world war. The first mention of this drink in a recipe book was three years after the war in 1922. In a book called Harry's ABC of Mixing Cocktails, by Harry MacElhone. This drink features brandy, orange liqueur and fresh lemon juice, shaken and served in a chilled and sugar rimmed martini glass. Cheers!
