Remy Martin Side car

The girls were bold, liberated and had short cut hair.

They painted their lips with raspberry red lipstick and pouted their mouths.

They wore scandalously short dresses adorned with feathers and pearls.

This is the image I have of the Flapper girls in the 1920’s.

Side Car is said to be a drink from that era, invented in either London or Paris at the end of the 1st World War.

The young had started to go out more to meet each other, they went to variéte, to cinemas and to cafes.

Tey lived a more licentious life than what they had used to before.


4 cl Rémy Martin VSOP Mature Cask Finish

2 cl Cointreau

1 cl Fresh lemon juice

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

For those who do not like sweet drinks, this could be a hit.

With six parts alcohol and 1 part lemon juice this was strong a little on the strong side and one is enough for me:)
