The Sidecar is a true classic cocktail, the earliest printed recipe for which dates to 1922. While there are many stories about the origin of this drink, all of them refer to a regular bar patron who frequently arrived at his local watering hole in a motorcycle sidecar. Don’t skimp on quality and you’ll have a truly delicious, delicately scented, citrusy cocktail that is the perfect way to cap off a long evening of knitting.
