Squid Mixes: Old-Fashioned Brandy

Same recipe as this drink, but with brandy instead of whiskey.  I prefer the latter but the sweetness of the brandy does bring out something awfully nice in the bitters.   It might be worth keeping the recipe, from David Wondrich's Imbibe, in mind for variety's sake.


  1. I see your picture and read the word brandy and i am instantly catapulted back to my 19th birthday when I poisoned myself with this stuff and I can't even look at it now. The things we do to our bodies

  2. On the thumbnail it looked like a feather in the drink and I thought no can't be right. My goodness what happened did he go rogue and use a tiny parasol ?

    cheers, parsnip

  3. Not so sure about brandy. It's a bit strong for me.

    But I'd try it :)

  4. I like brandy all on its lonesome.

    1. Me, too. Brandy and cognac would be well worth exploring on their own.
