Drink of the Day: Depth Bomb

January 7, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

When it’s cold outside, I like to pull out some cocktails made with brandy.  Don’t know why, and maybe it’s just a subconscious thing on my part, but when I think about warming myself up nothing does it better than a brandy cocktail.

When you see the name of this, you are going to think “shooter” but it is far from it.  This is a sipper that you can enjoy as an aperitif during the cocktail hour.  The brandy/applejack combination, along with the nice edge of lemon, gives you a smooth and delightful beverage, which goes perfect after a day’s worth of dealing with the elements outside.

Enjoy mid-week and stay warm.  This will get you started by warming you from the inside out.  Cheers!
