Cocktails Sidecar Brandy Buck's Club

The Sidecar was invented in a bar in Paris during World War I for a customer. The customer was an American Army captain and was driven to and from the bar in a motorcycle sidecar, hence its name.

The Sidecar was first introduced to London by MacGarry, an ever popular bar-tender of Buck's Club.

The sidecar originally involved mixing six to seven ingredients, whereas nowadays the sidecar only contains three or four ingredients.

The Recipe

  • 2 measures brandy
  • 1 measure Cointreau
  • Juice of half a lemon
