HARRY'S PICK ME UP
Ingredients:
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.

Ingredients:
  • 1 ounce of brandy or cognac
  • Juice of half-a-lemon (a real lemon!)
  • Two teaspoons of grenadine (again, real is recommended)
Directions:
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.
