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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
