The Brandy Metropolitan is a sophisticated cocktail that combines the rich flavours of brandy (or Cognac) with the sweet and tart notes of vermouth and simple syrup, complemented by a dash of bitters.

This Brandy Metropolitan recipe is a variation of the classic Metropolitan cocktail, offering a more profound, more complex flavour profile ideal as an elegant end to a meal.


  • 2 oz or 60 ml quality Brandy or Cognac
  • 1 oz or 30 ml sweet Vermouth
  • 1/2 tsp simple syrup
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon twist (for garnish)


  1. Mix: Combine brandy, sweet vermouth, simple syrup, and bitters with ice and stir thoroughly
  2. Pour: Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish: Finish with a lemon twist.


The Metropolitan cocktail dates back to the late 19th century, making it one of the older cocktails in the lexicon of classic drinks.

This brandy version of the Metropolitan offers a warmer, more rounded alternative to the more commonly known vodka and gin-based cocktails, showcasing the versatility of brandy as a base spirit.
