Brandy Sour

A sour is always a good drink to try on beginners. This is no exception. If you didn''t like brandy before trying the Brandy Sour, you will after you drink this. Garnishing a sour glass is tricky. I like a swizzle stick stabbed through the fruit. You can pull it out and bite the orange slice or push the fruit into the glass with the stick.
  • 2 oz. brandy (E & J XO used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • orange slice
  • maraschino cherry
Combine all ingredients except fruit in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled sour glass. Garnish with orange slice and maraschino cherry.
