Given its ingredients, this cocktail likely features a robust blend of flavors with the smooth, fruity notes of the brandy marrying the rich, often smoky characteristics of the whiskey. The drink draws its name humorously from the mix of the spirits, suggesting a "meeting" of sorts between these distinct liquors. Served in a cocktail glass, the Threesome is designed to be enjoyed cold, providing a bold tasting experience that could appeal to enthusiasts of stronger, spirit-forward concoctions.
