Among fruit-based brandies, apricot brandy is one that happily combines with a variety of juices and spirits. Because of its subtle complexity, apricot brandy has been used as the basis for a number of Apricot Cocktails. The most popular, and most straightforward, is a simple but elegant mixture of lemon juice, orange juice, and gin, although vodka may be used.

Game plan: You will want to use an all-metal shaker for the Apricot Cocktail to get it as cold as possible. This is a drink that you may want to experiment with, since its proportion of spirits is a question of individual taste.
