Cocktail Hour

I found this listed as a brandy drink, but it’s actually the grandfather of many drinks.

The essential ingredients are a few dashes of a sweet liqueur (about half a shot) usually citrus flavored though not always, some citrus juice (half a lemon or lime’s worth), superfine (sometimes called Bartenders, it’s quick dissolving) sugar, and a generous jigger (about 2 ounces) of whatever spirit you happen to be using.

This is poured into a shaker with ice and shaken (not stirred) then strained into a tall (Collins) glass and topped with seltzer or served over rocks (a more recent variation).
