Cocktail Moment: Harry’s Pick-me-up

Updated

*adapted from the transcript

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of brandy or cognac
  • Juice of half-a-lemon (a real lemon!)
  • Two teaspoons of grenadine (again, real is recommended)

Directions:

Stir ingredients with ice. Shaking works, but stirring preserves the clarity, which is aesthetically better when it’s mixed with champagne.

Strain it into your glass.

Top with champagne.
