This traditional brandy-based cocktail is usually topped off with orange liqueur and lemon juice, then served in a sugared glass with a twist of lemon.
If desired, wet the rim of a chilled glass with water. Dip the rim in sugar. In a cocktail shaker, combine brandy, lemon juice, and orange liqueur. Add ice cubes; cover and shake until very cold. Strain into prepared glass or a glass filled with additional ice cubes. Garnish with lemon peel twist. Makes 1 serving.
