Perfect Drink® recipe


The Sidecar first appeared at the end of World War One in either London or Paris, and the first recipes for it were published in 1922. It is similar to a Daiquiri but uses brandy rather than rum, but in that regard is probably more closely related to the Brandy Daisy (or just Daisy).
