Sidecar

The first iconic Cointreau cocktail. The Sidecar traces its heritage back in 1922 in London. A perfect balance between Cointreau, Cognac, and lemon, the Sidecar is a classic that has endured generation after generation. The final touch of a sugared rim provides a perfect balance of sweet and sour.
