For me, September marks the beginning of Sidecar season. Now, I make no secret of my love of a well-made sidecar. It’s got my favorites: cognac, lemon, and triple sec—what’s not to love? OK, going out and buying the ingredients isn’t something that I love. That’s why this Labor Day weekend, I was thrilled to see that Cocktail Courier was making my sidecar sipping a lot easier. For this weekend only the premium on-demand cocktail delivery service is offering a limited edition Sidecar Cocktail Kit from D’ussé Cognac. The kit contains all the fixins—a sexy 375ml bottle of D’ussé VSOP Cognac, 5 50ml bottle of orange liqueur, 2 bottles fresh lemon juice a bottle of simple syrup, sugar and whole lemons—needed for you to craft 8 perfect Sidecars for your entire squad. No liquor store runs in the rain, no trying to MacGyver some janky substitution of ingredients because you are too tired to run to the store in the rain. And at just $72, it’s well worth the money.
Now when I said it was a limited edition offering, I wasn’t kidding. The D’ussé Cognac Sidecar kit was only available from August 29 to September 2. If you got one, let us know in comments. For those who missed out, let’s hope (read: let’s demand) that the folks at Cocktail Courier bring it back for further fall enjoyment.
