Often times in art, a pioneer gives birth to many other iterations that were influenced by the said pioneer, and the cocktail world is no different.  While the Brandy Daisy is known as a bit of an antique cocktail, you’d be surprised at the drinks that it is indirectly responsible for.

The Daisy, which emerged in popularity during the late 19th century, eventually gave rise to two cocktails that ended up being more popular than the Daisy ever was: the sidecar, which really saw a rise in popularity after World War 1, and the margarita, which rose to prominence in the 1930s and 1940s, but is arguably more popular than ever in modern times.  Without the Brandy Daisy, neither of these drinks would have been possible. Sometimes, it’s nice to revisit and appreciate the pioneer that made it all possible.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 ounces of brandy
  • ¾ ounces of yellow Chartreuse
  • ¾ ounces of lemon juice

Preparation:

  1. Stir the brandy, Chartreuse and lemon juice in the glass, or shake the same ingredients in a cocktail shaker over crushed ice.  
  2. Strain the drink into a cocktail or wine glass, depending on your preference.  Obviously this step is not necessary if you did not use a cocktail shaker.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass (or wine glass)

The Daisy Brandy is an antique drink of sorts, and appeared in Jerry Thomas’ Bartender’s Guide over 120 years ago in 1887.  It should be noted that there are many variants, as some people add sugar syrup to sweeten the cocktail, or club soda to temper it.  Garnishes vary from berries, to mint springs, to a fruit of your choice. Regardless, sometimes it is nice to enjoy the original Brandy Daisy, rather than the popular drinks that inspired them.  Drink your Brandy Daisy today responsibly!
