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.

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.
