Brandy & Soda

Brandy is a complex, flavorful spirit – but it can lose some nuance when paired with bold flavors in some cocktails. So when we want to best experience those subtle flavors, we turn to the Brandy & Soda. Soda lengthens the drink and makes it refreshing, while its bubbles carry scent compounds upward, helping to reveal the woody vanilla notes of a good brandy (or cognac).

It’s a simple recipe that can barely even be called a cocktail (and by strict definitions, it is not) – but it still deserves a place in the drinker’s toolbox, for those days when something simple, sophisticated, and refreshing is all you need.
