  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2-3 dashes bitters
  • 2 ounces Brandy
  • 2 ounces Squirt


  • Place sugar cube in an old fashioned glass, add the bitters and muddle.
  • Add ice, brandy, and top with soda.
  • Best garnished with an orange slice and/or cherries.


You notice I use a 1:1 ratio of liquor to soda, many people do not. Diluted ratios of 1:2 or 1:3 are quite common, but to me that is madness. The liquor adds a ton of flavor and should be the star of this drink. However, feel free to adjust it to taste.
If you love making cocktails you will want to make your own Simple Syrup, it is easy and stores well!
