Brandy Highball

  • 2 oz brandy
  • Soda water

  • 1 lemon
  • 2 oz brandy

Peel the lemon trying to keep the peel in one piece to form a spiral. Place this in a highball glass with one end hanging just over the lip of the glass. Put some ice cubes in the glass and add the brandy and ginger ale. Stir before serving.
