Ingredients

Keo Brandy
Robinsons Barley Water
'Alpha' Cloudy Lemonade
Angostura Bitters
Green Lemon (1)
Sugar

The Process

Place a couple of ounces of sugar in a saucer and spread it around the saucer.
Cut the lemon in half.
From one half of the lemon cut 1 slice and put this slice aside for later.
Put 2 shakes of Angostura into the glass, and then shake the bitters out of the glass.
Rub one half of the lemon around the rim of the glass.
Touch the rim of the glass into the saucer of sugar and evenly coat the rim.
Put ice cubes into the glass
Add a good measure (2) of brandy into the glass
Add an equal measure of Barley Water
Squeeze the juice from both halves of the lemon into the glass.
Top up with Alpha Cloudy Lemonade
Take the previously saved slice of lemon and cut it into 2 pieces and use to decorate your glass.

Notes:
1. It helps to have a lemon tree in your garden, within reach of your veranda, the only real way to get fresh green lemons. By the time they are yellow and in the shops, they are too sweet for a sour Brandy Sour.

2. 'A good measure' is a matter of taste.


My qualifications?? 2 years 'living out' in Limassol with a lemon tree in the garden


Cheers
