Sidecar Cocktail

In this video, you’ll see how to make a classic sidecar cocktail. This Cognac-based cocktail is among the all-time classics, invented at the Ritz Hotel in Paris in the early 20th century. It includes just three ingredients: Cognac, Cointreau, and lemon juice—plus a little sugar to rim your martini glass. Watch how a professional bartender prepares the drink, then check out the recipe for the Sidecar Cocktail. The sugar on the rim plays so well against the sour from the lemon juice.
