Substitute for Asbach Uralt?
I want to make Rüdesheimer kaffee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%BCd...) this weekend, but it looks like the stores in my area (NYC) don't have Asbach Uralt in stock. Is there another cognac/brandy that would be suitable for this drink?
Would kirsch be good? I've been looking for a reason to buy some kirsch...
Kirsch is a cherry eau de vie / unaged cherry brandy. Asbach Uralt is an aged grape brandy. they aren't really interchangeable. You should be able to use and decent brandy, preferably a cognac, to sub for Asbach Uralt.
Renaissance Fine Wines & Spirits seems to have it in stock.
