The Sidecar is considered by many to be the most celebrated cognac cocktail on the world. While the origins of the drink have been heavily debated, the first “deluxe” version was created at Ritz Paris in 1923, an icon of cognac cocktails with an enchanting story, said to have been named after a motorcycle sidecar owned by a gentleman in Paris, then popularized in London: truly a tale of two cities.
