Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail - Sidecar

Inspire Happy Hour is Back!

It has been a while since I have been able to showcase a prohibition drink and here is the one you have been waiting for. I recently made the Sidecar for my friends and it was a hit. Originally this drink was said to be invented after WWI in London or Paris.  The Ritz Hotel in Paris claims origin of the drink.
