  • Want to try
  • kind of shocking how well spanish brandy works with the other ingredients; my only complaint is it's such easy drinking that the whole thing basically tastes like a complex vermouth — ☆☆☆☆☆

It's dun run out. So what bitters can be used in place of Abbotts?


I had no spanish Brandy on

I had no spanish Brandy on hand, and tried with Cognac.

I confirm what Mahastew already specified: Does not work with Cognac.  Too sweet. You are warned...
