Sidecar

Sidecar.

For David A. Embury, the sidecar is one of his six key cocktails. Reason enough to take a closer look at it.

55 ml Park XO Cognac
20 ml lemon juice
20 ml Combier Triple Sec
5 ml sugar syrup (2:1)

Preparation: Stirred.

The history of origins

What can be said about the origin of the sidecar? We first found the recipe in print in 1922, in Robert Vermeire’s “Cocktails“, [2] followed by Harry McElhone’s ““Harry” of Ciro’s ABC of Mixing Cocktails” in 1923. [1]

Supposedly, the sidecar was already present in Harry McElhone’s “ABC of Mixing Cocktails” published in 1919. [29] However, we do not have this edition, so we cannot verify this. If anyone has access, we would be very happy to receive confirmation and the exact wording therein.

Robert Vermeire informs us that the Sidecar is very popular in France and that it was introduced in London by Mr MacGarry, the famous bar-tender of Buck’s Club: „This cocktail is very popular in France. It was first introduced in London by MacGarry, the celebrated bar-tender of Buck’s Club.“. [2] Harry McElhone confirms this, as he credits MacGarry at London’s Buck’s Club: „Recipe by MacGarry, the popular bar-tender at Buck’s Club, London“. He also repeats this in his later books. [3] [4] [5] [6]

Buck’s Club is a gentlemen’s club, at 18 Clifford Street in London. It was founded in June 1919, and there was an American Bar in it. From 1919 to 1941, the bartender Malachy McGarry, also known as Pat McGarry, worked there. [14]

Later, Harry McElhone claimed the Sidecar as his invention, [17] [23] but this is obviously wrong. Pat Mcgarry is also often credited as the inventor, [17] dbut this is also a misconception. It is probably connected with the fact that not only in Harry McElhone, but in many subsequent books, it is stated that the recipe is Pat McGarry’s recipe. But all that is meant here is that it is his version of the sidecar. Perhaps those who hold this opinion did not know Robert Vermeire’s book, or misinterpreted it. [23] But Robert Vermeire is unequivocal. The sidecar was very popular in France before Patt McGarry was the first to make it known to London society. That is the meaning of the word “introduced”. It does not mean that he invented it. [18] [19] [20]

According to Robert Vermeire, the sidecar was very popular in France around 1922. So we can assume that it was probably thought up quite some time before that, and that this probably happened in France. But the time span does not seem to be that long. In 1930, Charlie Roe and Jim Schwenck inform us that „This cocktail, to our knowledge, is only eight or ten years old (according to Bob in Harry’s New York Bar) but it has done more to boost Paris to Americans than any other drink.” [7] Thus it must have been created between 1920 and 1922.

Albert Stevens Crockett reports in 1935: „So far as I have been able to ascertain, Europe, during the Dark Interim produced just one new cocktail that Americans took to and adopted. Americans who make their homes abroad and so have been able to watch the March of Invention over there, trace its origin to the Ritz Bar, in Paris.” [8]

Hôtel Ritz, Paris. [30]

This statement detailed Lucius Beebe in 1946: „The Sidecar was, to the best of the knowledge and belief of the author, invented by Frank, steward and senior barkeep of the celebrated Paris Ritz Bar during the golden age of the early twenties. In an era when Joe Zelli’s, Harry’s New York Bar and the men’s bar on the Cambon side of the Ritz were probably the three best known tippling Taj Mahals in the world and when every Atlantic liner set down hundreds of solvent and thirsty Yanks full of devaluated francs, Frank of the Ritz Bar was a sort of universally recognized king of saloonkeepers … The Sidecar was invented by Frank, so far as fallible human memory can determine, about 1923 as a sort of companion piece to the Stinger only with even more expensive ingredients. It was always built by Frank for favored customers with the Ritz’s own bottling of a Vintage 1865 Cognac and set one back, in this redaction, the then equivalent of five American dollars.“. [9]

So was the Sidecar conceived by Frank Meier at the Ritz? These lines speak for it, and it would also fit in chronologically. Frank Meier worked at the Ritz from 1921, [21] and the Sidecar was probably created between 1920 and 1922. But we don’t really want to believe this story, because there are justified doubts about Frank Meier’s authorship. He published his book “The Artistry of Mixing Drinks” in 1936. In it, he labelled all the drinks he invented as such. The Sidecar is listed in the book, but Fank Meier does not claim it as his invention. If he were the inventor, he would certainly have announced it, especially since the Sidecar was so popular. Only two conclusions can be drawn: Either the marking was forgotten in the book, or Albert Stevens Crockett and Lucius Beebe are wrong. We tend to the latter.

But then, from whom did the sidecar originate? In 1938, Stanley Clisby Arthur reported: „Legend has it that this cocktail was created by accident. An innkeeper of France, confused and excited by news of damage to his side car, combined separate orders of cognac brandy, Cointreau, and lemon juice into a single drink. The mischance proved a bonanza, for the happy mixture found instant favor. Growing in popularity through the years. Side Car has now become the smart drink of two continents.” [10] Well, that’s a legend, and nice to tell, but it probably didn’t happen that way.

Konkreter wird hingegen David A. Embury im Jahr 1948. Ihm zufolge sei der Sidecar von einem seiner Freunde in einer Bar in Paris während des Ersten Weltkrieges erfunden worden. Er sei nach dem Seitenwagen des Motorrades benannt worden, mit dem der „gute Hauptmann“ normalerweise zu und von einem kleinen Bistro gefahren worden sei. In diesem Bistro sei das Getränk geboren und getauft worden. Ursprünglich enthielt es etwa sechs oder sieben Zutaten anstelle der drei, die praktisch in allen Rezepten angegeben seien: „It was invented by a friend of mine at a bar in Paris during World War I and was named after the motorcycle sidecar in which the good captain customarily was driven to and from the little bistro where the drink was born and christened. As originally concocted it contained some six or seven ingredients in place of the three now set forth in practically all recipe books.“ [12]

Many here say that the bar could only have been Harry’s New York Bar, and his friend Harry McElhone. Can this be true? The bar was opened in 1911 by Tod Sloane. Harry started working at Ciro’s Club in London after the First World War, and accordingly published his book Harry of Ciro’s ABC of Mixing Cocktails in 1921. [13] We can therefore assume that he moved to Paris in 1921 at the earliest. David A. Embury, however, says that the sidecar was invented during the First World War. Harry McElhone is therefore clearly ruled out as the author, as he himself states in his first books. However, we are convinced that it cannot be Harry McElhone for another reason. One only has to read the text carefully: The sidecar was invented by a good friend and was named after the sidecar in which the captain was usually driven. Who is this ominous captain? Surely it can only be the good friend. Otherwise it would have to say “a captain” and not “the captain”. Friend and captain must be identical, otherwise the text makes no sense.

But did this captain invent the sidecar described here in an unknown bar? One has to listen up, because David A. Embury writes that the captain’s invention would have consisted of six to seven ingredients. It is therefore clearly something other than a mixture of cognac, lemon juice and triple sec. We believe that both drinks were given the same name by chance, just as different variants of the Aviation Cocktail were created. Thus, a Sidecar was invented in an unknown bar during the First World War, but not the version we understand by it today.

The bar may have been Harry’s New York Bar, because if the captain was an American and had an appetite for American drinks, it is not unlikely that he would have stopped there. Perhaps he came to Paris at the end of 1918 as part of the Allied War Coalition conference to discuss armistice terms with Germany. [22] We will never know.

1934 Markus Bredenbek writes: „The origin of the Side-Car Cocktail’s name is shrouded in the same obscurity veiling most of the cocktail names. I have heard it explained as originating during the start of the motorcycle era when the first side-car was attached for a second passenger; it has been explained also as a sort of stirrup cup drink, but instead of being a stirrup cup, it was served to an automobilist beside his car just before starting a trip; another version is that it was named as a side drink before indulging in wine.“ [11]

Moreover, some doubt that the term sidecar really refers to a motorbike sidecar. Dale DeGroff, for example, says that in the bartending world it is understood to mean something quite specific: if you misjudge quantities and there is still liquid left in the shaker after straining, and you tip this residue into a small glass, then this glass is called a “sidecar”. [23] He may be right about that, but unfortunately he does not specify since when this meaning has existed at all. We could not find any reference to it in historical books. Webster does not know this meaning either. [24]

Mills & Fulford, double side car from 1903.
Mills & Fulford, double side car from 1903. [26]

For us, it is very likely that the sidecar of the motorbike is the eponym. A French patent was issued for it on 29 April 1903. Sidecars were used in a variety of ways, continued to develop, and in the 1920s and 1930s it was finally impossible to imagine traffic without them. Hundreds of motorbike and sidecar manufacturers were founded. Sidecars were used as tradesmen’s and cargo vehicles or for passenger transport, even as taxis. [25] As the sidecar is a French invention, and due to the importance of the sidecar for traffic, it is more than likely that the drink was named after the sidecar of the motorbike.

Analysis of the historical recipes

Sidecar - Average ratio of cognac to citrus juice.
Sidecar – Average ratio of cognac to citrus juice.

One reads again and again that in its early days the Sidecar was preferably prepared in a 1:1:1 ratio. However, this is only partly true. If you look at the average ratio of cognac to citrus juice across all recipes, you would expect a ratio of 1. However, this is not the case. It is already over 2.4 in the early period. We see from the diagram that there is no uniform trend. The ratios are on average between 2.3 and 2.7.

Nevertheless, it is true that the proportion of cognac increased continuously. This becomes clear when one turns one’s attention away from the average to the individual values.

Sidecar – Ratio of cognac to citrus juice.

The average ratio, for example, already shows the value of over 2.4 in the early period, because there are recipes from this time with an extremely low citrus content that drive the average up. One finds the instruction to use six times as much cognac as citrus juice, but also 24 times as much. If one ignores these extreme recipes, which also occur in later times, it certainly shows that the average ratio increased. This is also confirmed when one looks at the individual recipes. Between 1920 and 1933, over 60 per cent use as much or more citrus juice as cognac. Between 1960 and 1999, it is only about 20 per cent, and the proportion of cognac has become larger and larger.

Sidecar - Average ratio of citrus juice to triple sec.
Sidecar – Average ratio of citrus juice to triple sec.

But the average ratio of citrus juice to Triple Sec has also steadily decreased from around 2.25 to around 1.75. So the Sidecar seems to have become sweeter.

Sidecar – Ratio of citrus juice to triple sec.

But looking at the individual recipes here as well, this average decrease seems to be more due to the extreme recipes becoming fewer. Between 60 and 70 per cent of the cases use an equal proportion of citrus juice and Triple Sec, across all times.

Sidecar - Lemon juice and lime juice.
Sidecar – Lemon juice and lime juice.

Some authors suggest lime juice. In particular, between 1934 and 1941 it is about 25 percent, otherwise it is significantly less. Where this large variation comes from after Prohibition is not clear to us. Were there perhaps fewer lemons available on the market or is it a translation error in that “limón” was translated as lime, although it can also be understood as lemons?

Sidecar - Other ingredients.
Sidecar – Other ingredients.

Around 85% to 90% of recipes use only cognac, citrus juice and Triple Sec (Cointreau) for a Sidecar. Otherwise, bitters, egg white, a sugar-crusta rim, lemon zest or cherry are used in various combinations. However, these variations only appear from 1930 onwards.

Our recipe

For us, a Sidecar is first and foremost a sour, where the sugar syrup is replaced by an orange liqueur. Therefore, we follow our idea of how a sour should be prepared. For us, this means using 30 ml of citrus juice and 20 ml of sugar syrup (2:1) for every 80 ml of spirit (or sometimes a little less, depending on the spirit, but at least 60 ml). For the Sidecar, we have based the ratio of cognac to lemon juice on this 8:3 ratio and calculated it down to 20 ml lemon juice. In purely mathematical terms, this results in 53.3 ml of cognac instead of 80 ml; we rounded up to 55. In our tasting, 60 ml was too much and 50 too little.

Since Triple Sec has a different sweetening power than sugar syrup, we tried to see how much Triple Sec we had to mix with lemon juice to get a sweet-acid ratio comparable to the sour. This was 25 ml of Combier to 20 ml of citron juice. However, this results in an imbalance in the Sidecar, as the lemon flavours are overpowered by too much orange. The solution is to switch to the classic 1:1 ratio, as this gives both fruits in an optimal ratio, and to supplement the missing sweetness with some sugar syrup. This does not mean that the Sidecar used to be equally unbalanced. The recipes do use Cointreau, unlike our version, but we have read that the sugar content of Cointreau used to be higher. If this is true, it would have to be corrected there as well. We have not investigated this more closely. [28]

This explains our recipe of 55 ml Park XO Cognac, 20 ml lemon juice, 20 ml Combier Triple Sec and 5 ml sugar syrup (2:1).

All in all, the Sidecar is a very difficult mixed drink. At first glance, it seems to be just a sour with an orange liqueur instead of sugar syrup. But it is difficult to get the ratio right so that all the components are in balance. You can do a lot wrong, but when it is prepared correctly it is very delicate. [27] This may also explain why we have been estranged from it for a long time and why we could not find an approach to it.

Is there a connection with the Brandy Crusta?

One often reads that the Brandy Crusta was the predecessor of the Sidecar. As evidence for this, it is also stated that there are historical recipes that prepare the Sidecar with a sugar rim. [23] However, we would like to clearly contradict this opinion. The DNA of the sidecar is clearly that of a sour. Thus, the Sidecar is a cognac sour in which sugar syrup is replaced by liqueur. A Brandy Crusta, on the other hand, is not a sour, but a cocktail that bears a strong resemblance to the predecessor of the Old-Fashioned Cocktail, the Whiskey Cocktail or the Brandy Cocktail. It also contains a little lemon juice. This should make the Crusta shine and round it off, but not give it the character of a sour. The argumentation based on a crusta rim in the sidecar is also invalid, because this has only been suggested sporadically since the 1930s.

Other Sidecars

Finally, for the sake of completeness, it should be mentioned that occasionally recipes for a sidecar have been published that are something quite different. For example, for Adolphe Torelli in 1927 it is a mixture of orange juice, Cointreau and vermouth. For Bernard, in 1934, it is a mixture of brandy, gin and lemon juice. For more examples, please consult our list of recipes.

There are also occasionally strange deviations. In 1930, William T. Boothby, for example, knew a variant made from Congnac and Cointreau, without lemon juice, or he also prepares his Sidecar with Applejack or Bacardi rum.

But basically all recipes made from cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice are also called Sidecar. One exception is the “Trailer”, which George A. Lurie published in 1933.

1934 Markus Bredenbek: What Shall We Drink. Seite 14. Mixing a Side-Car Cocktail.

The origin of the Side-Car Cocktail’s name is shrouded in
the same obscurity veiling most of the cocktail names. I
have heard it explained as originating during the start of the
motorcycle era when the first side-car was attached for a
second passenger; it has been explained also as a sort of stirrup
cup drink, but instead of being a stirrup cup, it was served to
an automobilist beside his car just before starting a trip;
another version is that it was named as a side drink before
indulging in wine. But what difference does it make so long
as the drink is delightful? — and it is! Here’s how to make it —
simple as rolling off a log:
Fill your cocktail glass one-third full of Cointreau, (or
Quantreau), one-third Cognac Brandy, one-third lemon juice.
Pour into iced shaker and mix thoroughly by shaking. Strain
into your cocktail glass and drink it.

1935 Albert Stevens Crockett: The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book. Seite 120/122. Side-Car Cocktail.

So far as I have been able to ascertain, Europe, during
the Dark Interim produced just one new cocktail that
Americans took to and adopted. I first came across it in
Rome. My host there, Commendatore Giulio Gelardi,
General Manager of the Hotel Excelsior, did not, however,
claim the Side-Car for Italy, and Mussolini himself
was silent on the subject. Americans who make their homes
abroad and so have been able to watch the March of In-
vention over there, trace its origin to the Ritz Bar, in Paris.
The correct formula:

One-third Lemon or Lime Juice
One-third Cointreau
One-third Brandy

Observations
Care should be observed in the amount of
lime juice used in this cocktail. Only a few drops
are really needed, as too much will tend to sour
the drink to excess and thereby spoil its taste.
Cointreau has a very strong flavor, and care in
its use is also recommended. Too much of this
liqueur may over-dominate the flavor as a whole.
Properly made, this is an excellent cocktail.

The Sidecar was, to the best of the knowledge and belief of the
author, invented by Frank, steward and senior barkeep of the
celebrated Paris Ritz Bar during the golden age of the early twenties.
In an era when Joe Zelli’s, Harry’s New York Bar and the men’s
bar on the Cambon side of the Ritz were probably the three best
known tippling Taj Mahals in the world and when every Atlantic
liner set down hundreds of solvent and thirsty Yanks full of devalu-
ated francs, Frank of the Ritz Bar was a sort of universally recog-
nized king of saloonkeepers and was, in fact, a very pleasant,
generous and understanding friend to thousands of Americans.
There was nothing either cheap or popular about the Ritz and
there was no dandruff on the morning jackets of its customers, who
included Evander Berry Wall, the then King of Spain, the Prince
of Wales, Phil Plant, William B. Leeds and the Russian Grand Dukes
then living in exile in Paris. The men’s bar was also the happy
romping and stomping ground, in summer, of most of Harvard,
Yale and Princeton with an occasional democratic leaven of Williams
or Dartmouth.
The Sidecar was invented by Frank, so far as fallible human
memory can determine, about 1923 as a sort of companion piece
to the Stinger only with even more expensive ingredients. It was
always built by Frank for favored customers with the Ritz’s own
bottling of a Vintage 1865 Cognac and set one back, in this redac-
tion, the then equivalent of five American dollars.

1948 David A. Embury: The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Seite 111. The Side Car.

This cocktail is the most perfect example I know of
a magnificent drink gone wrong. It was invented by a
friend of mine at a bar in Paris during World War I
and was named after the motorcycle sidecar in which
the good captain customarily was driven to and from
the little bistro where the drink was born and chris-
tened. As originally concocted it contained some six
or seven ingredients in place of the three now set forth
in practically all recipe books. The simplification of
the recipe by reducing the number of ingredients
should not, in itself, affect the desirability of the cock-
tail. Unfortunately, however, the proportions are usu-
ally stated as equal parts of lemon juice, Cointreau,
and brandy. This may not be a bad formula for a mid-
afternoon drink, but for an aperitif it is simply hor-
rible because of its sickish sweetness.
Essentially the Side Car is nothing but a Daiquiri
with brandy in the place of rum and Cointreau in the
place of sugar syrup or orgeat. Some Side Car recipes
specify lime juice, just as some Daiquiri recipes
specify lemon juice. However, to most palates, lemon
combines more pleasingly with both brandy and
whisky than does lime.
In making our Side Cars for service at home, there-
fore, let us stick to the same proportions as are used
in our Daiquiris as follows:

SIDE CAR DE LUXE
1 part Cointreau or Triple Sec
2 parts Lemon Juice
8 parts Cognac or Armagnac
Shake vigorously with plenty of cracked or crushed
ice and strain into chilled cocktail glasses. A twist of
lemon may be used if desired and the peel dropped
into the glass. Otherwise no decoration.

1977 Stan Jones: Jones’ Complete Barguide. Seite 199. Sidecar.

Derives its name from the sidecar of the motorcycle in which the creator of the drink
was driven to and from his favorite bistro in Paris during World War I. The captain’s original
recipe called for more ingrédients than the lemon juice, brandy and triple sec (Cointreau) of
today. Others contend that while the drink was indeed invented in Paris it was in 1923 at the
Ritz by Frank, the barman. More than likely the drink was “reinvented” as is the case with so
many drinks, even today. Whatever else the Captain did for the War effort he gave the world an
excellent drink:
cocktail glass shake/blend
1 1/2 oz brandy
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz triple sec (or Cointreau)
for a sweeter drink sugar the rim of the glass

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
