Sleepy Head

Sleepy Head is a very appropriate name for this and just about any brandy cocktail. They make you tired, for sure. I'm using my mint today, so you can see where this is going--a mint smash of a drinks. Brandy can actually become a very refreshing cocktail when spaced out with ginger ale and flavored with fresh produce. I really recommend chilling all the liquid ingredients if you are making this on a hot day since ice melt is the enemy of this cocktail.
  • 3 oz. brandy (Christian Brothers VSOP used.)
  • 5 mint leaves
  • ginger ale 
  • orange twist
Lightly muddle mint and brandy in the bottom of a highball glass. Fill with ice and top with ginger ale. Stir gently land garnish with the orange twist.
