This is the one I use to make a Brandy Sour:

Others might have their own twist to it, I have never been talented at mixed drinks so I just find recipes I like and stick to em, LOL.

Pour a generous shot of Brandy over some ice in a rocks glass and fill with sweet & sour. Traditional garnish for a drink using sweet and sour is a maraschino cherry.

You can purchase sweet and sour mix at grocery stores, it's usually near the sodas with other mixed-drink goodies like Grenadine, Roses' Lime, Bloody Mary mix, etc.

You can also make sweet and sour mix yourself. It's basically one part simple syrup to one part lemon and/or lime juice. (Simple syrup is just a one to one ratio of sugar to water, which you bring to a boil to dissolve the sugar.) You may have to play with the ratio of lime/lemon juice and simple syrup to get the right mix of sweet to sour depending on the fruit you use.

Oh thank you, thank you!

I'll try soon and tell you if they taste as good as I remember (or have trouble remembering!)

Do sweet & sour, brandy, and a touch of Grenadine. Stir and enjoy
