Review:

A riff on the classic Sidecar that's even simpler to make but equally tasty.

Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge consists of 51% cognac so there is no need to add cognac to make a great Sidecar, simply add lemon juice. This drink benefits from a touch of dilution so also works well served on-the-rocks in an old-fashioned glass.

History:

Created June 2005 by yours truly (Simon Difford), London, England.

See our Sidecar cocktail page for the full story behind the origins of the Sidecar, its history and variations.
