Made with cognac or brandy, dark creme de cacao and cream, the Brandy Alexander is the perfect after-dinner drink.
Originating in the early 1900s, the Brandy Alexander is an adaptation of a gin cocktail called “The Alexander” that simply replaces gin with cognac or brandy. Easy drinking, creamy and mildly sweet, in our opinion it makes a delightful after-dinner drink.
