Other Information

Similar to the Daiquiri in its basic form, it is widely documented that the Sidecar was first invented by Bartender Harry, at Harry's New York Bar in Paris, after World War I and named after a motorcycle sidecar in which an army captain was chauffeur driven to and from the bar. However, in Harry’s own book he credits the invention of the drink to Mac Garry of the Bucksclub in London.
