Always gets me into trouble…

Okay, admittedly, I’ve never had one of these before last night. The only time I’d even heard of them was from the Feist song (which, by the way, is a GREAT song). I thought it was probably time to try it and it seemed like a good one for the end of January. It’s smooth, scrumptious, and makes the perfect late night indulgence. If you like Baileys, RumChata, or other creamy drinks, you’ll like this one.

It is, of course, the Brandy Alexander.


  • 1 oz brandy
  • 1 oz Crème de cacao
  • 1 oz whipping cream
  • Freshly ground nutmeg for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sprinkle with fresh ground nutmeg, and enjoy!

I’m telling you, it goes down eeeeeeeeeasy…
