Brandy Cocktails

Brandy cocktails are mixed drinks made with brandy as the base spirit. They come in a variety of styles and flavors, ranging from classic drinks like the Sidecar and Brandy Alexander to modern creations such as the Vieux Carré and the French 75. Brandy cocktails can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or mixed with other ingredients such as juices, syrups, and liqueurs to create complex and delicious cocktails.
