Comment:

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.

About:

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.
