The Queens Cocktail is a gin-based cocktail similar to the Perfect Martini( with the addition of pineapple juice and occasionally lemon juice).

The Perfect Brandy Manhattan is a variation of the classic Manhattan cocktail, made with brandy instead of whiskey and using equal parts sweet and dry vermouth. Add in a dash or two of Angostura bitters, for an excellent, classic cocktail. This type of brandy is popular in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Comparing the flavor profiles of bourbon and brandy needs a little bit of expertise. The fermented wines when making brandy create a huge impact on the flavor as the grapes and fruits can vary. Bourbons tend to be sweeter due to the residual sugar during fermentation.
