I’m not a big drinker. At all. I can’t stand the taste of alcohol, and have only actually tried a few different types of drinks. However my dad made me a drink called Brandy Alexander awhile ago and I am now hooked. (If you’re not a huge alcohol drinker like myself – give this drink a try! It will be your new fave. ;))
It tastes like a creamy, whipped, chocolaty dream. Heavenly. Andddd it’s in a martini glass which automatically makes any kind of drink even better.
I like to think of this drink as a ‘rainy day cure’. The smell of the fresh nutmeg and the sweet and savory flavours make it the perfect drink for Fall and Winter months.
Cozy up by the fireplace, take out some board games & have a Brandy Alexander with your friends & loved ones!
1 oz of Brandy

Add some crushed ice to a martini shaker. Add Brandy, Creme de Cacao and Cream. Shake for 30 seconds, and pour into your preferred glass.
