Brandy, where would we be without it? A spirit made by distilling wine, brandy is found all over the world (cognac, on the other hand, has to be made in Cognac, France to earn that title). A versatile spirit, brandy can be made from a plethora of different types of fruit, bringing items like apple brandy and eau de vie into the market. While brandy is typically sipped neat after dinner, this rich spirit can certainly hold its own in many cocktails. Give these drinks a try the next time you want to test these fruity, boozy waters—fast.
