HARRY'S PICK ME UP
1 ounce of brandy or cognac
2 teaspoons real Grenadine
Juice of 1/2 lemon (or lime or other citrus fruit)
Champagne or other sparkling wine of your choice
Prepare a small pitcher of ice for one cocktail. Place everything except the champagne in the pitcher and stir it briskly.
Using a strainer, transfer the brandy mixture into a tall wineglass. It should fill the glass up about halfway. Top it with your champagne or sparkling wine.

- 1 ounce of brandy or cognac
- Juice of half-a-lemon (a real lemon!)
- Two teaspoons of grenadine (again, real is recommended)
Stir ingredients with ice. Shaking works, but stirring preserves the clarity, which is aesthetically better when it's mixed with champagne.
Strain it into your glass.
Top with champagne.
