I make brandy sours very differently and it gives a much better taste - a shot of brandy, lemon juice/cordial, couple of drops of angostura bitters and top up with bitter lemon (if not lemonade). This is the recipe used in cyprus and is much better. Serve in a tallish glass with ice and lemon. Enjoy!

As a member of the RAF currently serving in Cyprus I totally agree with your recipe - infact I will nock one up now!!

P.S. I prefere lemonade to bitter lemon, otherwise it becomes a brandy really f****** sour!!!

As another ex British Forces in Cyprus I can only underline that the Cyprus way is the only way;). A slight variation is topping up the lemon juice with soda water and having sugar on the glass rim.

All recipes are ok but the one i used when barman in a nightclub Limasol Cyprus is one i learn from an old barman.

Slice of lemon wet the lips of a tall whiskey serving glass, and dip it in sugar so the sugar stays on the lips of the glass on the outside, just a cm. Then moist the inside of the glass with angostura and drop your ice cubes, a shot of brandy and one part of campari to 10 parts of lemon squash mixture - fill the glass almost and top with soda water. And as Andy said a slice of green lemon on the lip of the glass and if you like to decorate for a lady add a cherry on the lemon with a toothpick'. The Campari makes it look a healthy colour and gives the refreshing taste. Enjoy a refreshing drink.
