Cypriot Brandy Sour

Cypriot Brandy Sour highball cocktail with brandy, aromatic bitters, and lemon soda

The Cypriot Brandy Sour was suggested to us by a Cocktail Party user – how lucky are we, to get so many great cocktail suggestions from all you fine folk! It’s easy-drinking and refreshing, and a long-time favorite of British soldiers posted in Cyprus.

If you order one of these in Cyprus, it’ll likely be made with the nation’s own variety of brandy, a caramel-forward spirit lighter in flavor than, say, Cognac. You can use any brandy you like, though; we’ve even enjoyed a few with Metaxa, a Greek brandy flavored with roses and other botanicals.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
