A simple, classic cocktail made with American brand Christian Brothers Brandy.


  • Lemon wedge
  • Powdered sugar
  • Ice
  • 1 ½ ounces Christian Brothers Brandy
  • ¼ ounce cherry liqueur
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • ½ ounce triple sec


Rub the lemon wedge around the rim of a cocktail glass. Dip glass into a shallow dish with the powdered sugar, taking care to coat it evenly around the rim of the glass.

Fill a drink shaker half full with ice cubes. Pour the brandy, cherry liqueur, lemon juice, and triple sec into the shaker and shake well. Strain into the prepared cocktail glass. Throw in the lemon wedge and serve.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
