Drink of the Week

Brandy Alexander

1oz Brandy
1oz Crème de cacao 
1oz Cream (Heavy cream)

Garnish: Grated nutmeg on top

Shake in ice and strain in to a Cocktail glass

 

This coming week-end is Easter Sunday so I thought it would be fun to put up a chocolate inspired drink.  This is a delicious dessert drink that tastes creamy, strong and yes, chocolatey. The nutmeg garnish is optional, but gives a nice aroma.

The Brandy Alexander is a variation of an earlier drink called simply ‘Alexander’, the difference being Gin instead of Brandy.   Both versions are classics that date back to the early 20th Century and are a great alternative to offer someone who would usually order a ‘Chocolate Martini’.

The recipe calls for Creme de Cacao, which for those of you who haven’t had it, is a chocolate flavored liqueur.  Marie Brizard Creme de Cocoa Brown is the one I would personally recommend, and using a premium Brandy will help this drink tastes its best too.

Don’t wait on the Easter bunny if you want to indulge in some chocolatey goodness this week-end, instead go order yourself this yummy after dinner drink or use the recipe above to make it at home.

Happy Easter and Passover everyone!
