Fondue: Substitution for kirsch?

Lat K | Dec 29, 2005 10:28 AM

I'm making a fairly traditional fondue tomorrow night for a party, but I'm reluctant to buy a bottle of kirsch just for this occasion - I'd probably never use kirsch again, the stuff is expensive, and they don't sell small bottles around here.

Is there something I could use as a substitute - say, brandy? I'd like to keep the fondue old-school (white wine, gruyere and emmenthal cheeses, etc)...unless there's an absolutely awesome new-fangled version out there.

Thanks for your help!
