Cognac (a brandy) will go well with apple flavors, orange flavors. I'm not sure I would mix it with anything too tart, but like a cherry flavor might be ok.
Cognac and Grand Marnier is an easy one (equal parts, stirred with ice, then strained into a cocktail glass).
A "Brandy Old Fashioned" is another easy one (Wisconsin something or other it's called)... - sugar and bitters (add a cherry or orange if you'd like) - muddle in bottom of glass - add a couple ice cubes - add 2oz brandy
