The idea was to make a riff on an Aviation (see Biggles Aviation) but ginger cries out for cognac so we also ended up with this ginger Sidecar.
Created in 2008 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at The Cabinet Room, London, England. As a kid I was an avid reader of the Biggles books.
See our Sidecar cocktail page for the full story behind the origins of the Sidecar, its history and variations.
