Brandy Chocolate Bliss

The Brandy Alexander, a delightful evolution of the original Alexander cocktail, is a rich and sweet after-dinner delight. This luscious drink, born in the post-Prohibition era, features the velvety goodness of VSOP brandy, the indulgent sweetness of crème de cacao, and the smooth creaminess of cream. With its chocolate and dried-fruit profile, balanced by the cream, it's practically dessert in a glass. As the cold weather sets in, this classic cocktail and its various interpretations start gracing bar menus worldwide.
