Brandy Sour

Like it's whiskey and pisco brethren, this is a sweet and sour cocktail that just about everyone agrees tastes great. I used Catoctin Creek's 1757 Distiller's Reserve brandy (aged in Bordeaux casks) to give the drink an elegant and local flair. It certainly didn't lose anything by not being made with whiskey.
  • 2 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. sugar syrup
  • orange slice
Combine all ingredients except orange slice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
