Rémy Martin & Cointreau Sidecar Gift Set
The Sidecar is one those forgotten and underrated classics. This ever-stylish cocktail is a combination of the finest Cognac, orange liqueur, lemon juice and the gentlest touch of a sweetener for balance – consider it a brandy Daiquiri if you will. It was thought to have been invented in Harry’s New York Bar in Paris during World War I. From there, it has become popular throughout the world, but without ever reaching the kind of heights that might make it passé or overdone. As a result, it feels timeless, like a little black dress or a well-tailored tuxedo.
This sleek gift set contains a bottle of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal Cognac and a beautiful limited-edition Cointreau designed by a Marseille-based art enterprise called The Tropicool Company. So, all you’ll need to whip up a Sidecar is some lemon, some ice and sugar syrup. We’ve also thrown in a few additional goodies, including a Rémy Martin Black Cocktail Shaker, a Rémy Martin Jigger for measuring, and a pair of Rémy Martin Coupe glasses to sip your cocktail from.
Now, when it comes to making a Sidecar, there’s some debate between the French and the British regarding how much Cognac to use. The former prefer roughly equal measures of the three main ingredients and the latter prefer a higher brandy content. We’ll let you decide, but we make ours somewhere in between, by shaking 45ml of Rémy Martin 1738 Cognac, 30ml of Cointreau, 30ml of lemon juice, a splash of sugar syrup and ice, then straining into a chilled glass. Garnish with a sugared rim or a twist of lemon peel, depending on your preference for sweet or sour.
