Squid Mixes: Brandy Sour
The sour began its rise to prominence in the 1860s. Whiskey was the most common base liquor but brandy, rum and gin sours were also popular. I got my recipe from David Wondrich's Imbibe: brandy, water, sugar and the juice of half a lemon. As with many older drinks, it's mixed directly in the glass, though more recent recipes call for shaking. I prefer whiskey but brandy's nice for a change of pace.
