1792 Signature Cocktails: The Bourbon Sidecar

by Scott Wagner

A Saturday Sign Off 

Sign off from your Saturday routine with a few sips of a 1792 Bourbon Sidecar. It’s a cocktail that’s been around longer than most, and for good reason—it’s damn delicious. It’s one of the things we like to drink in spring and summer because it’s sweeter than other drinks and lighter than anything on the rocks. Plus, the sour bite (which we’d describe as pleasantly pronounced) lends it a kick that lasts from beginning to end.
