DIY Sidecar Cocktail Kit
The exact origin of the sidecar is unclear, but it is thought to have been invented around the end of World War I in either London or Paris. The drink was directly named for the motorcycle attachment which was very commonly used back then. The Ritz Hotel in Paris claims origin of the drink. The first recipes for the Sidecar appear in 1922, in Harry MacElhone's Harry's ABC of Mixing Cocktails and Robert Vermeire's Cocktails and How to Mix Them. It is one of six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury's The Fine Arts of Making Drinks(1948).
2 oz Loujon 10 year Armagnac, 3/4 oz J.B. Combier, 1/4 oz Ginger syrup, 3/4 oz Lemon Juice.
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until very cold. Strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.
