Good Fortune Brandy Cocktail

Good Fortune

This wildly delicious cocktail will help you ring in the Lunar New Year as we welcome the Chinese Year of the Tiger. The flavors here combine in an almost magical way to make something wonderfully complex that is bright, fresh, tart, and a little bit sweet. Our copper pot distilled D'UVA 1 brandy, Purple People Eater prickly pear liqueur, muddled raspberries, pineapple juice, lemon & a hint of Chinese Five Spice are sure to make you feel in good fortune!

See recipe below.

1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz lemon juice
3-4 fresh or frozen raspberries
dash (about 1/8 tsp) Chinese Five Spice powder (Please be sure to add only this much! It brings such a delightful flavor with the right amount! But too much makes the drink bitter.)


Place raspberries, pineapple juice, lemon juice & Five Spice powder in shaker and muddle together.  Add brandy, liqueur & ice. Shake & strain into a martini or coupe glass without ice, or strain & pour over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with lemon peel & fresh or frozen raspberries.
