Happy National Cognac Day! Celebrate in Style with Rémy Martin.
Intended to honor the craftsmanship and skillful mastery that goes into crafting every bottle of Rémy Martin Cognac, the Sidecar pays tribute to classic cognac cocktails, with a special focus on its signature cocktail: The Royal Sidecar.
Cognac was one of the first liquors to be used in cocktails. Classic cognac cocktails include the Sidecar, the Sazerac, and the French 75.
Complex and extremely well balanced, the first “deluxe” version was created at Ritz Paris in 1923. This iconic cocktail has an enchanting story: It’s been said that the drink was originally named after a Parisian gentleman’s motorcycle sidecar, and then popularized in London. Now that’s truly a tale of two cities.
