The Club Cocktail was first printed in W.C. Whitfield's 1939 Just Cocktails book. This brandy cocktail is flavored with maraschino liqueur and pineapple juice with the flavor of Peychaud's bitters to top it off. It has a tropical feel that is somewhat rare with brandy.

Shaking pineapple juice creates a top foam that some people like and some don't, even though it does settle after a few minutes. So if you prefer, give this one a solid 30-second stir.
