Brandy Library houses one of the largest collections of spirits (not just brandy) in the country. Spirit sommelier Ethan Kelley created this spin on the White Lady cocktail that Harry MacElhone served at Harry's New York Bar in Paris in 1929. It includes limoncello, a sweet, lemon-flavored liqueur from Italy.
