Faithful Buddy: Brandy, gin, peach liqueur, fresh lemon & orange juice.

You can tweak this drink if you want it sweeter or sourer by altering the amount of lemon juice you add. More lemon heads it towards Kamikazee territory, a little less makes it more like sweets.

It’s a bastardisation of another drink in one of my books, the Apricot Cocktail, which calls for apricot brandy, but I’ve got some brandy and a fresh bottle of peach liqueur to use up instead.

Named it after the cat.

How To Make: Faithful Buddy


  • 35ml of Brandy
  • 25ml of Gin
  • 25ml of Peach Liqueur
  • A dash of fresh lemon juice
  • A glug of orange juice
  • Garnish with an orange rind twist
  • Preferred glass would be a cocktail glass

Shake everything with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with an orange rind twist, carved out over the drink so that the spritz coats the surface of the drink.

It will never let you down.
