The Brandy Smash is one of those great, classic
"stick" drinks, meaning that here you use a muddler
in the first part of the preparation. In this case you will muddle mint, sugar, and club soda gently, just enough to release the mint's essence and dissolve the sugar in the soda. Add ice, brandy, stir and you have one smashing smash.
The same can be done with most base distilled spirits: rum, whiskey, and gin are excellent options.
