Cocktail Recipe: Brandy Alexander

He's my Brandy Alexander

Always gets me into trouble

But that's another matter

Brandy Alexander

Feist, Brandy Alexander


The most well known member of the Alexander cocktail family (cocktails consisting of a spirit, crème de cocoa, and cream or half and half), the Brandy Alexander is a great winter cocktail. If your friends like chocolate martinis, up their game with this. And treat yourself to a quality crème de cocoa, you will notice the difference.


Brandy Alexander


1 1/2 ounces cognac or good quality brandy

1 ounce creme de cocoa (we used Tempus Fugit)

1 ounce half and half

nutmeg, for garnish

mint leaf, for garnish, optional


Combine all liquid ingredients in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Serve in martini or coupe glass. Grate fresh nutmeg on top. Garnish with mint leaf if using.
