This is a cute-looking lady drink. Unfortunately, the orange juice did not work for me in this. It just tasted off.

Brandy gump
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz brandy, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 1/4 oz grenadine. Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Is it just me, or do you want this a bandy grump? Anyway, it’s kind of like a sidecar, but with grenadine instead of triple-sec. I think I’d rather just have a sidecar.

Metropole
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz brandy, 1 1/2 oz dry vermouth, 2 dashes orange bitters, 1 dash Peychaud’s bitters. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass; garnish with a cherry.

Kind of like a dry metropolitan, but with fancy bitters and a cherry. Did really do much for me, and the cherry added nothing.

Night and Day
Ingredients: 3/4 oz each of rye, sweet vermouth, and brandy, 1/2 oz maple syrup, 1 dash Peychaud’s bitters and 1 dash Angostura bitters. Stir with ice and strain into a glass over ice.

Honestly, I don’t remember anything about this cocktail. But considering I switched out most of the ingredients for something else, maybe I don’t have the right to judge it anyway. I have a feeling it was probably too strong for me.

Saratoga cocktail (Jerry Thomas)
Ingredients: Equal parts brandy, rye whiskey, and dry vermouth, plus 2 dashes Angostura bitters. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

There are actually two Saratoga cocktails: one named after Saratoga, NY, and invented by Harry Johnson; the other named after Saratoga Springs and invented by Jerry Thomas. I’m not sure why this cocktail turned out so red-colored, but it tasted like a combination of a manhattan and a metropolitan.

Just another example of me trying a different metropolitan during a metropolitan phase. This one was pretty good, with a great balance of dry and sweet.

Brandy toddy
Ingredients: 2 oz brandy, 1 tsp simple syrup. Stir together in a glass and then add 1 ice cube and 1 lemon twist.

This cocktail definitely needed something. Like soda or more ice or bitters. Might be good for an after-dinner drink to sip on.

Monta rosa 
Ingredients: 1 oz triple-sec, 3 oz brandy, about a tsp lime juice. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass.

I really liked this cocktail! It was like a margarita, but with brandy, and you all know how much I love brandy. I also like that I could stir instead of shaking it, because I’m lazy like that. This is definitely going to become one of my more frequent cocktails.
