Brandy Alexander Recipe

Happy Hour: Brandy Alexander

A milky mix of brandy, cream, and creme de cacao, the brandy alexander is often referenced but rarely ordered. Rumored to be a favorite drink of John Lennon's, this classic cocktail has had a song written about it (Feist's "Brandy Alexander"), and in an episode of Mad Men, Peggy orders one to get her through an unsuccessful date.

After hearing so much about brandy alexanders, I finally made one for myself — and quickly drained the glass. Though on the sweeter side, this drink isn't as dessert-like as you might think; with smooth yet potent brandy, it pleases much like a white russian.
