    I had this once with it warmed. They placed the brandy glass at an angle over another glass filled with boiled/hot water inside. This actually makes the drink a bit stronger.

    believe it or not I first had this drink given to me by a flight attendant on a Hawaiian airline flight about a week ago. OUTSTANDING

    I asked for a Boxcar and the bartender recommended a Beautiful. Excellent substitution. I liked it better.

    Great memories from Beautifuls, that a bartender recommended for an after dinner drink when my first son graduated from college. Now planning on taking them to a Yurt for my second son's college graduation celebration.

    This is a wonderful drink, especially heated. The aroma and the taste cannot be beat. A great after dinner drink or I enjoy heated, in front of a fireplace with a good book. Decadent. Classy. Good. :)
