Tonight's Drink -- The Alabazam

Our goal was to make a drink with bitters, which we found when repacking my collection of miniature liquor bottles. With tonight’s drink, we killed the Cointreau, which we used instead of the curacao in the original recipe. This is a great-tasting drink but a bit too summery for a cool December night.

For 2 servings: 3 oz brandy, 1 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1 oz Cointreau, 1/2 oz simple syrup (much less than in the original recipe), 1 tsp bitters, 4 oz seltzer Shake all ingredients except the seltzer in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass and top with seltzer.
