Brandy, you’re a fine drink!

This is probably my favorite cocktail we have discussed thus far (I know it is only number 3, but it really is yummy!) It is the Apple Brandy Cordial. How could someone not like that? The name sounds like a lipstick shade, and even the manliest man would enjoy this semi-sweet libation. Plus, it has a great apple base that doesn’t bring an appletini to mind (no offense you super sweet green concoction) and is different enough from the traditional holiday cider. Seriously y’all, this one tops the list.

This drink is made in batches (of 4) so it’s perfect for a dinner party. In a large pitcher, combine 3/4 cup brandy, 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/3 cup Cointreau, 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon angostura bitters. Fill 4 glasses of your choice with ice and top that with the yummy mix. To be a proper bartender, then place an apple slice or two on the rim of the glass or just put them right in the drink. Be creative, cheers y’all!

“Apple Brandy Cordial, you’re a fine cocktail. Yeah, you’re taste could steal a sailor from the sea.”

We found this cocktail on the Real Simple website. 

I have yet to mention this, and should have sooner, ALWAYS drink responsibly. Also, cocktails are for grown-ups so stick with the soft stuff if you aren't 21.
