Whatever you do, use the cheapest brandy you can find!
In France, Keo Brandy and Cock Drops are rather difficult to find. However, as I live in Cognac country, I have a few suppliers for the local stuff which suffices.
My recipe:
Lemon/Sugar rim as described by another poster
Half a tumbler of crushed ice
Drop of bitters
Generous portion of Cognac
Top-up with Agrum which is the local fizzy Bitter Lemon.
OK, it's not going to taste a la Dhekelia or Akrotiri - but it's good enough for me...

And in case there a worries that a fine Cognac is being "ruined", there are local brews here designed specifically for long drinks.
