Brandy Alexander

The Brandy Alexander is a luxurious, creamy cocktail that has been popular throughout the 20th Century. This is the Brandy version of the gin-based Alexander cocktail, it's warmer and silkier and absolutely perfect for winter afternoons. The Brandy Alexander is also a luscious after dinner drink that pairs best with chocolate desserts.

  • 1 oz Cream
  • 1 oz Crème de Cacao
  • 1 oz St. Rémy VSOP
  • Dash nutmeg

Pour first 3 ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.

Stinger

Everyone should try this cocktail at least once; it's an interesting mix of brandy and white crème de menthe liqueur. The Stinger makes an excellent dessert cocktail that pairs nicely with rich chocolate desserts. This is also one of those drinks that is most commonly served on the rocks, but it's also excellent shaken and served neat.  If you try to substitute green crème de menthe you will end up with a muddy-colored cocktail that, while it does have the same taste, the appearance is not as appealing.

  • 1 3/4 oz St-Rémy VSOP
  • 3/4 oz  white crème de menthe

Pour the ingredients into an old fashioned glass with ice. Stir well.
