Brandy & Soda

Brandy & Soda highball cocktail

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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
