Mulled brandy
Plum Brandy

The mulled brandy is prepared in a special container - a copper. Cold brandy is poured. The copper is put on the stove or in the embers of the fire. The flame should not “lick” the brandy because it ignites. Put some sugar to sweeten the brandy. Hold with preheated tongs a sugar cube over the boiling brandy. The sugar cube melts from the heat and turns into brown caramel which drips into the brandy. Stir well to get a nice yellow-amber color and the brandy to become very sweet and smooth.
