Take any of your favorite tall cocktail glass and fill half of it with ice cubes or crushed ice.
Now add 2 to 4 drops of bitters to the ice cubes.
Pour 2 measures of Cypriot brandy and 1 measure of Cypriot lemon squash into the cocktail glass.
Take a long stirrer or spoon and stir the drink for a few seconds until all ingredients mix well.
Your favorite Brandy Sour Cocktail is almost ready. Now you have two options for topping the drink. If you want a stronger final addition, then top the drink with soda water. On the other hand, if you like a slightly sweeter flavor, then pour in lemonade.
Place a fresh cherry at the top of the drink and garnish it with a lime or lemon wedge. Serve immediately.
