In a 12-ounce highball glass, add sugar, maraschino cherry juice, aromatic bitters and a splash of lemon-lime carbonated beverage. Muddle mixture together using a spoon or a muddler (a rod with a flattened end). Fill glass with ice cubes. Add brandy. Fill space with the remaining lemon-lime carbonated beverage; gently stir to combine. Garnish drink with an orange twist and a maraschino cherry on a cocktail skewer.
