Today's toast goes to my relatives currently hunkering down semi-safely in Brisbane, especially my niece trapped in her house with 3 children aged under 4 years....am starting to wonder what our family has done to annoy Mother Nature (earthquakes..now floods!!) Anyway, one of the following should help take the edge off....
1.5 ounces brandy
3/4 ounc light cream
2 tsp honey
Shake all the ingredients together, with ice cubes, in the shaker and strain into a cocktail glass.
