The story about the invention of the Cognac cocktail Sidecar. Dita von Teese plays the hero’s girl.
The great war was over. But the party was just getting started. War heros filled the streets of Paris. Some were making up for lost time, while others were making history…
As the story goes, an upstanding officer was driven nightly to the Riz in a motorcycle sidecar. Entering the bar he was anxious to chase the chill of the cold of the night. Cognac would do the trick quite nicely.
The barman started with Cointreau, 1865 Rémy Martin Cognac and finished with a touch of lemon juice. Combining the finest Parisian bar with the finest french ingredients.
The sidecar, created in 1923.
PS: the only thing which is really totally out of place in this video is the mustache of the barman.
