Midnight Cocktail

It's almost midnight at work and I'm whipping up this cocktail with the house made apricot brandy for the occasion. This apricot brandy is richly flavored with real apricots and sugar. It is a grape brandy, however, but not a bad one.

A cocktail that relies entirely on apricot brandy is only enjoyable when the apricot spirit is delicious in itself. Those artificially flavored apricot spirits are pretty gross and wouldn't stand up well to this kind of a spirits-forward drink recipe.
  • 2 oz. apricot brandy (house made version used)
  • 1 tbsp. triple sec
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
