Fancy Brandy

People ask me to make a cognac drink that really shows off the flavor of the brandy. This Fancy Brandy cocktail really does this. It's really similar to an Old Fashioned cocktail made with brandy.

I originally hoped to do this drink with a rich American brandy, but not finding one that is suitable when the desire struck me, I opted for cognac. I was glad that I did. This will be the perfect drink that fits that guest request for the cognac drink. The portion is small, so rather than use a cocktail glass, I like to serve it in a sour or cordial glass.
  • 2 oz. brandy (cognac please)
  • 1/2 tsp. Cointreau
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except lemon twist in a shaker with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass (cordial glass pictured) and garnish with a lemon twist.
