Squid Mixes: Brandy Sling


The verdict on this one was swift: too sweet.  That was kind of what I expected going in and I knew from the first sip.  As with the other slings we've tried from David Wondrich's Imbibe, it's a simple combination of the base liquor, sugar, water and ice.  Really, the last thing brandy needs is more sugar.  Brandy on the rocks would have been just fine.

Oh well.  This is why we experiment.

  1. Not a sweet tooth, so slings don't appeal. Brandy on the rocks, probably hold the rocks :-)

    1. I am still working out how I feel about brandy. It's so sweet that it's easy to be fooled into thinking you're not drinking alcohol at all. Also something vaguely medicinal about it. Mind you, it's nice for variety but not my favorite.

    1. I don't know. Maybe just losing some of her natural curiosity as she ages.

    1. That's how they always seem to take it in movies and such - particularly cognac. Cognac makes me think of older James Bond movies.
