Cocktail History

The Bourbon Sidecar cocktail has a captivating history that dates back to the day of Prohibition in 1920s America. This unique concoction was invented in Paris by an American Army Captain and is still celebrated today with the same spirit and ingredients. It combines Bourbon whiskey, sweet orange liqueur, and homemade lemon juice for a zesty, umami experience. A Bourbon Sidecar cocktail is particularly popular during the warmer months when its sweetly sour mix of flavors can help you enjoy the heat. So try a Bourbon Sidecar at your next gathering – you won’t be disappointed!
