Chambord Sidecar Cocktail Recipe
A simple variation on the classic sidecar (which is a descendant of the Brandy Crusta). The original Sidecar's origin is debated with both a French and English bar claiming to have first created the combination of cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice for a customer who arrived at the location in the sidecar of a motorcycle.Bar veteran Dale DeGroff argues that the drink’s name references the mixture that’s left in the shaker after mixing a drink which is then strained and served in a shot glass on the side (and aptly called a Sidecar).Chambord Black Raspberry liqueur can be used in place of the existing sweetener in many classic cocktails and the Sidecar is an excellent example of this.
