Winter Sidecar History
One of the classic cognac cocktails, conventional wisdom says the Sidecar was created in Paris but popularised in London during the roaring 1920s. Whilst working on the perfect Christmas cocktail, our master mixologist Patrick Pistolesi was inspired by its roots in celebration. By adding warming festive flavours – cinnamon and mandarin – to a base of cognac and vermouth, we think he’s done it! Best served around a roaring fire or the Christmas tree, his Winter Sidecar will fill you with festive cheer.
