Brandy Alexander

This week I have decided to stay in the spirit of Thanksgiving and stick to a classic, traditional cocktail.  One that makes you want to curl up under a blanket by a roaring fire with family and friends to share stories, watch football, or maybe even watch the Wizard of Oz on TBS (You know you watch it every year around the Holiday’s).  The Brandy Alexander seemed like the perfect cocktail to coin our Thanksgiving drink of the week.

What you will need to create this popular concoction is:

Dark Creme de Cacao
Half and Half

Once you have your ingredients pour 1 1/2 ounces of Brandy in a shaker with ice cubes.  Now add a 1/2 ounce of the dark Creme de Cacao and Half and Half.  Shake until the tin is ice cold to the touch, and strain into a glass.  Finally, sprinkle nutmeg on top of the drink.

If you are looking for something a little different to spice up the drink.  Replace the Half and Half and ice with Vanilla Ice Cream.  Add the alcohol and blend.  Sprinkle with nutmeg, and enjoy.

Happy Thanksgiving!
