What would be the best ingredients to add in a BRANDY? by jael Q: I really want to add something in a BRANDY to make it more tastier and make drinking more exciting... but i'm scared maybe it will become a poison.. I really want to ask the booze lovers who tried and mixed liquors. I really want my friends and i to taste the unfamiliar yet delicious mix of brandy. I want the taste to be more tasty...let's say tangering.

A: You do not mix anything with brandy. Brandy is like a wine and it is to be served room temperature or warmed in the snifter(brandy glass).

What can I substitute in my christmas pudding & cake for rum or brandy? by marlene2135 Q: I need to substitute the usual rum or brandy with one of following, which would suit the best - port, marsala, grand marnier, red wine, white wine, dry sherry.

Can I use rum instead of brandy when baking a fruitcake? by Q: I would like to create a fruitcake that my friends and family would at least try a slice. The recipe that I have calls for brandy. I would like to use rum instead. What do you think? If you have any good fruitcake recipes, please share.

A: You could use rum but the reason it calls for the brandy is due to its flavor. Rum has a very slight flavor while brandy has a much more powerful one. Spiced or dark rum would work much better than white rum.

Can apple vinegar or apple juice be a substitute for apple brandy? by Q: I'm making Tarte au Pomme and the recipe calls for Apple Brandy, but I don't have this ingredient. So I was wondering whether or not apple vinegar can be used, or apple juice?

A: NO!!! DO NOT use apple cider vinegar. If you don't have apple brandy, do you have some rum? Some regular brandy? If not, use apple cider or apple juice and brandy extract. So say your recipe calls for 1 cup of apple brandy. Use a scant cup of apple juice or apple cider and a tablespoon of brandy extract (in the spice aisle at the store, next to the vanilla extract). Here is a link to a handy equivalents and substitutions chart. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/foodnut/09329.html DO NOT USE VINEGAR!!

Where in New Zealand can I have plums distilled into brandy? by Tahini Classic Q: My plumtrees are going to yield such a vast harvest this year that I seriously doubt anyone will eat them all. I would love to find a distillery on the south island I can cart them off to to have them turned into brandy or slivovic or whatever. Does anyone know where to find a place like that, or maybe what else to do with those plums?

A: Buy some wine making equipment and turn them all into Plum Wine. Then build/purchase your own still and make brandy with some of the wine.

what is the proper way to use a brandy snifter? by eddy1 Q: does a brandy snifter, as apposed to a hiball glass, improve the experience of the drink?

A: The normal way or the "proper" way The normal way is to pour your brandy into the glass, let it warm in your hands, then swirl it around the glass before drinking. This means you can get more of the aroma, having a much smaller glass opening area than there is drink surface area traps the aroma in the glass The "proper" way is to use a brandy warmer, which holds the glass at an angle and has a small heat source to warm it for you, and then do the swirl, smell, drink routine. And here is one http://www.bondsthejewellers.co.uk/html/details.php/pid/686/cid/132/jewellery/silverware/arthur_price_of_england__shaken_not_stirred_/arthur_price_of_england_brandy_warmer_and_glass.html a brandy warmer And here's one more like the one I have http://www.tudorcrystal.com/designs/new/gift/Brandy_Warmer_photo_large.jpg

Can we keep Brandy in a crystal decantor long term? by Q: I heard that crystal decanters, if used for spirits like brandy, cannot hold the liquor for very long without causing the brandy to be affected. Is that true, or is a labeled 'spirit crystal decantor' able to keep the brandy for a few days / weeks?

A: Liquor stored in lead crystal will absorb lead over time. Unless you're drinking a lot of it it's probably not a major health risk but still not a good thing - lead is poisonous and can accumulate in the body. There is "lead-free crystal" which is safe to use for long-term storage.

A: in armenia

I'd like to order a bottle of brandy from an online retailer. Do I have to be home for the delivery? by January 20th, 2009 Q: I want to order a specialty bottle of brandy from an online specialty liquor retailer. It says "any person accepting delivery of alcoholic beverages must also be at least 21 years of age". While that isn't a problem for me (I'm 39), I work all day, and I assume the delivery would come during the day. Nobody would be home, so if no one were there to prove age, would they just take the package back?

A: They would leave a note on the door and attempt to deliver again. 3 times is probably the most amount of times they will try to deliver before returning it to the sender. If it's FedEx, they will allow you to pick it up from the package center after the driver's route is complete for the day so long as you have ID and the note they left.

Where can I find the youtube video of Brandy vs Bristol Palin? by Q: Everybody says Brandy lost even though she was better than Bristol. I'd like to see the video. Can you provide a link?

What can be mixed with cherry flavoured brandy? by Q: What can be mixed with cherry brandy? (I dont want to make a cocktail, just mix it with one thing). Or can I drink it on its own?

A: put a shot or two in a small balloon glass. Hold it in both hands until it warms to body temp. Ten stick your nose in the glass and inhale deeply. This is why those glasses are called snifters. A little on the tongue, another deep sniff. Do this with any brandy, plain or flavored. They are made to be served warm. Never over ice. So, the best thing to mix with cherry brandy would be a crackling log fire, a good cigar, your best dog, a good book or a good friend or two. and time. Always take the time to enjoy.

Where can I find a Creme Peach Brandy, and what Brand is it? by Master Chief Q: I went to my Sister's House and someone had left a bottle of creme peach brandy, we finished it off but when I went to buy somemore know one could find it anywhere?

I make this creamy brandy sauce . are the any alternatives to Brandy that I could use for children.? by wee2john Q: I would like to know what I could use instead of Brandy in my creamy brandy sauce using milk, cream, water, cornflour, butter, sugar, brandy. It is for children and it is nice and creamy but I can't use brandy for legal reasons.

A: If it is cooked it is fine. If not I can not help you. But when you cook alcohol all the alcohol cooks out of it and you are left with the flavor. I promise. Research it if you want.

How do I get the Brandy in Elderly Scrolls 3 Morrowind for xbox? by Katherine S Q: I am in the thieves guild and iI am doing the mission where I have to get vintage brandy from a dead noble. How do I get into his house? I am in the thieves guild and I am doing the mission where I have to get vintage brandy from a dead noble. How do I get into his house? Do I need a grandmaster's Lock Pick or do I need to higher my level for lock picking?

A: Well from the sounds of it you have the right house. There are two entrances, one far more suited for a thief, i.e. the one upstairs on the right. Basically, you're going to wither need a scroll, spell or high enough security, as I don't remember there being a key for you to steal. If you're really struggling to open it you could go to pretty much any bandit cave and you'll manage to find a couple of Scrolls of Ondusi's Unhinging (opens 40-60 points), and you'll be set (I think it's a 40 point lock) Good Luck, hope this helps.

Can you get drunk off brandy beans? by Jožo Q: I wanna know if brandy beans can get you drunk. Some of you guys are MORONS! When I say brandy beans, I'm refering to those chocolate bean shaped things with brandy inside them. Use google before you decide to make yourself look like an idiot.

A: Of course, but you would have to eat a lot. Say, like 100.

What is the best brand to buy for Dark Rum, Brandy and Vodka? by רָגַשׁ Q: I want to drink all these as a beverage on its own, I'm not going to mix them with anything. For example, some kinds of Whisky were sourish, and the others had a smooth and rounded feeling. I want something that doesn't FEEL strong, or rather goes down very nicely. What are the best for Brandy, Dark Rum and Vodka? What about Bacardi for Dark Rum and Absolut Vodka?

A: My advice is to go in to a liquor store, one that's clean, fairly large with a good reputation and ask a knowledgeable sales person. Not only is he there to sell something to you, but to keep you as a regular customer and develop a continuing relationship with you - he wants you to come back. Dark Rum - Meyers Brandy - E&J Vodka - Kettle One But it's ALL going to taste strong to one without much experience. .

what can I use in stead of brandy in a peach preserve recipe? by goo_ie Q: don't know anything about buying brandy and wonder if anyone has ever used another maybe juice or something, or do you need the brandy.

A: Honey Peach Jam Ingredients: 1/4 tsp mace 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg 1 Tbsp cinnamon 1-1/2 tsp whole cloves 3 pounds fresh peaches, blanched, peeled, and puréed 2-1/2 cups raw honey 1/4 cup lemon juice 3/4 cup fresh orange juice Instructions: Tie the spices in a cheesecloth bag. Combine ingredients and simmer together until the mixture thickens. Remove the spices. Pour jam into hot, sterilized jars. Seal.

How do you make a good stage brandy? by Sarah Q: I need to make some alcohol for a theater production. Do you have a good "brandy" recipe? I'm good on the wine and the vodka fronts, but I can't figure out a good brandy.

A: uh. a little of alchohol never hurts anyone! =D thats my motto.!

How long does wine have to sit to become brandy? by Chris, Austin TX Q: I have a bottle of very very old bottle wine from my Grandfather. It's about 60 years old; don’t know where he got it, but its labeled Bordeaux. Now I have a friend who tells me it isn't wine anymore, that it has turned to into brandy. Is this true or do I have a good old wine in my hands? PS should I drink it? Or even better; is it safe to drink?

A: If wine is not stored appropriately, it will change to vinegar, not brandy. It is very easy for a bottle of wine to go bad, and therefore, I would not suggest drinking it. Check the cork. If the cork is not 100%flat on the top and not rotten, I might open it and check it out. If you have had it setting in a place that is not too warm (I'm talking not above 80*F) it should hold. Look up the vintage on google and see what it comes up with. You may have a pretty neat posession and you might want to hold onto it! Cool story!!!

How do you brandy soak a cigar at home? by tomcat0251 Q: How do you Brandy soak a cigar at home?

A: Put you cigars in a humidor, or tupperware, or any other sealed container and put a small open jar or bowl of brandy in there with it. The cigar gets infused with the brandy through evaporation. Any other way and you'll just end up ruining your cigars.. EDIT,, you can expect it to take a couple of weeks minimum, before you get a full flavor, the longer the better. Check occasionaly and make sure your brandy jar has plenty in it.

I need an inexpensive substitute for Christian Brothers Brandy for my eggnog? by elynn1111 Q: I make eggnog every Christmas and the recipe I use calls for Christian Brothers Brandy - does anyone know of a good substitute that is less expensive.

A: Would you be willing to try something else? Like Southern Comfort?

What can I use as a substitute for brandy? by shellbugger Q: My pumpkin cheesecake recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of brandy (if desired). I was just curious if there is anything I might have in my kitchen already that would duplicate the flavor? Otherwise, I 'll just omit that one ingredient.

A: Since it's being used as a flavoring you could substitute vanilla extract- or another extract you may have such as almond or lemon.

How is it even possible to drink brandy straight? by Q: I tried it and it was just too strong for me. I could feel the fumes from it crawl up my nose. Maybe its because I bought a real cheap brand or am not drinking it right. I sipped it from a cup at room temp? Is that good or should I drink it like a shot or with ice? I can usually handle most liquors straight. Is brandy just one of those liquors that you have to acquire?

A: Straight is the only way. In a snifter you let it spin around and inhale the perfume. Then sip very slowly. If you don't like it don't feel you have to drink it. I tried scotch a few times and decided I didn't need to buy more expensive stuff, so I drink burbon.

How do you make a really good brandy alexander? by jonico61 Q: I remember them from the sixties, and have tried some when dining out, but have no idea what goes into them (besides brandy).

A: It makes me v feel very happy and strange, a feeling I would not have acheived while sober, I'm actually drunk off it now for the first time, it feels really nice, try it.

Is brandy necessary in chocolate fondue? And if not was is the best recipe or link to a recipe out there? by bigpurplemouth05 Q: I want to make chocolate fondue for dessert what is the most flavorful but not extremely thick recipe that may or may not require brandy or liquor.

A: Try this: Bring heavy cream to just a boil. Chop up some dark chocolate put it in a bowl. Pour hot heavy cream over the chocolate - it will melt nicely - keep it warm and dip away. No need for any alcohol at all - but creme de cocoa works nicely if you want.

A: Allspice Brandy Chicken 6 tbl Butter 2 x Onions, diced 4 x Chicken breast halves 2 x Apples 1/2 cup Calvados 1/2 tsp Allspice 2 cup Apple juice 1/2 tsp Salt 1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper 2 tbl Flour Melt half the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onion and saute till tender. Remove from the pan and reserve. Peel, quarter and core the apples. Melt 1 tbsp butter in skillet and brown chicken breasts on both sides. Add apples, Calvados, allspice, apple juice, salt and pepper to skillet. Cover and cook over low heat 20 minutes. Remove chicken to a platter and keep warm. Return onions to pan. Blend together remaining butter and flour. Stir into sauce and cook for 5 minutes till sauce is thickened. Pour sauce over chicken and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings. Brandy-Peppercorn Steak with Root Vegetable Straw Vegetable or olive oil 2 x New York strip steaks - (10 oz ea) 1 tbl Soft green peppercorns 1 tbl Pink peppercorns 1 tbl Coarsely ground black pepper 2 x Garlic cloves minced 1/2 cup Carrots unpeeled, julienned thinly lengthwise 1/2 cup Parsnips unpeeled, julienned thinly lengthwise 1/2 cup Rutabagas peeled, julienned thinly lengthwise 3 tbl Whole-grain mustard 1/4 cup Brandy 1/4 cup Beef broth 1/4 cup Heavy cream Oil for frying Salt and pepper to taste Mash the peppercorns and garlic together with a mortar and pestle or food processor. Coat the steak with mustard and press peppercorns and garlic into the meat. Place the steaks in hot, oiled skillet and sear on one side, about four to five minutes per side for medium-rare. While steak is searing, heat separate saucepan with oil. Make sure oil is very hot and fry vegetables (carrots, parsnips, and rutabagas) until crisp and golden brown, just a minute or two. Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper. When steaks are nicely browned, flip them over, add brandy, and ignite. Cook until rare. To test steaks for doneness, press the meat with your finger - it should be firm to the touch. It is better to remove when underdone, rather than overdone, since you can always cook it a little more, if necessary. Remove the steaks from pan and place each on a plate. Add beef broth and cream to pan and reduce to thicken. Less broth and cream will help the sauce to thicken more quickly. Pour sauce over steak, top with "straw" vegetables.

How many shots of brandy does it take for a female to get drunk? by Q: I'd say a girl about 5'5 tall.. weight 140? How many shots of brandy does it take for a female to get drunk? Just curious.

A: Could anywhere from 1-4. Depending on individual tolerance. But really brandy isn't something you do shots of,taking into consideration the alcohol by volume. Generally contains 35%–60% alcohol. It's something you sip not 'chug'. Back in the day it was more so considered an after dinner drink. Something to relax with.

How much brandy to kill the yeast in my wine? by fg d Q: Hey there, IVe decided to go with brandy to finish off the fermentation of my wine, to keep it from starting again from sweetening. But Im afraid I dont know how much I should use (per gallon) and dont know how long I should wait before racking it after I add it. Also , the type of brandy that works best? but how long do I leave it sit before racking after I add the brandy?

A: Raise alcohol level over 17% and all should be dead. Most yeast cant survive over 15%. It depends on the current alcohol levels of your wine is. Either way, this will make a fortified wine, and will have a lot more heat from the alcohol. You will need to balance with higher sugar levels, which can also be accomplished by adding more unfermented juice (called sus reserve). You will have to do a lot of math.

Is there really such a large difference between a mediocre brandy and a good to excellent brandy? by reluctant Q: I'm not a drinker in general, but have started wondering about brandies. I guess the question is whether you are usually willing yourself to pay a large premium for a good to excellent brandy, over a mediocre brandy. Also, what brandies do you prefer? Generally, do you favor grape, apricot, etc., and more specifically, do you favor a particular brand? Is there a special way to serve a brandy, or do you just pour it into a glass and slurp?

A: A good brandy is like a tiny cat in velvet slippers scampering down your throat. A mediocre brandy is like the same cat, without the slippers, being pulled out by the tail. Don't even mention other fruit brandies in the same breath as good grape brandy. Top of the line, at least in terms of cost, is cognac, produced in the cognac region of France. In terms of cost, you can do better with armagnac, produced nearby. I like Bras d'or. Many people like Metaxa, a Greek brandy. Never slurp a good brandy. Pour a little into a snifter or balloon glass and warm it with the palm of your hand. Swirl it, sniff it, sip it. Enjoy it.

Can I substitute brandy for cognac in a cooking recipe? by Carla B Q: The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of cognac. I only have brandy in my pantry, so I wondered if it would really alter the taste.

How old is the youngest brandy blended in Torres 20 imperial brandy? by Dan_S Q: I know that Torres 20 is a "solera" brandy (blended brandy of brandies of different ages). How many levels are in this solera and how old is the brandy in the bottom row? Thanx!

A: Nice question and in the near future I plan to seriously look it up. Good luck to you on your search.
