Brandy Cocktail

December 16, 2015

With the party season in full swing I wanted to share this recipe for a great cocktail. It is a perfect drink to have at the ready to greet your guests as they arrive. Martha suggests serving it in a punch bowl but I prefer to serve it from my mom and dad’s vintage martini pitcher using  martini glasses instead of punch cups.  I just love a stylish glass.  

 

Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

2 lemons, zest removed in strips with a vegetable peeler, plus juice

2 oranges, zest removed in strips with a vegetable peeler, plus juice

¾ cup sugar

½ vanilla bean, split and scraped

14 ounces brandy

1 bottle (750 ml) Prosecco

Large ice ring (if you want to serve it as punch)

 

Directions

Combine zests, sugar, and vanilla seeds.  Muddle zests with a muddler or a wooden spoon to release the oils, and let sit 1 hour.  Add juices, and stir to dissolve sugar; stir in brandy.  Pour punch through a fine sieve into bowl (or pretty pitcher).  Refrigerate at least one hour and up to 

overnight.  Combine brandy mixture and Prosecco in your serving bowl/pitcher, add ice ring if using punch bowl.  Serve immediately.
