12 drinks of Christmas – The Brandy Buck

What a Christmassy treat we have for you today. The fifth in our series is the Brandy Buck – sweet ginger and sour lemon with a brandy backbone.


  • 50ml brandy
  • 20ml lemon juice
  • 20ml 1:1 sugar syrup
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Ginger ale


Shake and pour into a highball glass and top with ginger ale.

Try the Domecq 1820 Brandy in this (£14 for 50cl). It has a vanilla-y, nutty flavour that works well.
