What Adhesive to glue Tiles over Brick?

We have an old brick fireplace. We plan to place Tiles (Slate or Porcelain probably) over top of the bricks.

What is the correct Adhesive to use to do this? I assume just plain quick set or thin set (Mortar) is NOT the right product??

thanks in advance.

Latex modified thin set is best. Do not use a mastic.
