The Skirt

Day 112


The Skirt
3 shots out of 5



All I've been hearing in this house today is "Only 2 more days of school Mom.  Only 2 more days left!!"  The buzz of summer vacation has most definitely hit this house and will probably explode come Friday afternoon.  I have to say, I'm pretty excited about it too.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5.  I got tonight's cocktail comes from Jan.  Thank You Jan for "The Skirt".  I am in "almost" total agreeance with you Jan on the rating of this cocktail.  Jan gave it a 3.5 and I gave it a 3!  Jan had omitted the sugar completely from her recipe and I had downsized it quite a bit.  All in all we made just about the same cocktail.  I have never really had a taste for Brandy, but in tonight's cocktail I do not mind it at all!!  The lemon juice in the cocktail adds a good flavor to it as well.

Check out today's run to the liquor store.  I just couldn't help myself with the "Little Guys"!!

Here is the recipe for The Skirt:


  • 2 oz brandy
  • 1 oz triple sec (I used cointreau)
  • 1 oz sweet & sour mix
  • 1 oz sugar (which seems like A LOT of sugar, so I only added 1/2 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
In a short glass, add ice, brandy, triple sec (or cointreau), sweet & sour mix, sugar and lemon juice.  Stir up all of your ingredients really well and enjoy!!

Cheers to you Jan!  Thank You for tonight's cocktail!  Thanks to you I can now say that I do enjoy a cocktail with brandy!!

Cheers!!

  1. I'm glad you tried it :) I really thought the sweet and sour mix gave it enough sweetness.
