National Brandy Alexander Day | Sweet and Simple Brandy Alexander
The Brandy Alexander reminds me of Mad Men. A popular drink in American cocktail history, I immediately thought of the popular TV show when I saw this day on the food holiday calendar. While I can never hope of living during the time with the fashions that I really love, I can enjoy a Brandy Alexander whenever I want.
For today, I decided that I really didn’t want a traditional Brandy Alexander. It’s rainy and dreary and I wanted something that would perk me up. Ice cream always seems to do the trick. Into the freezer I went and grabbed my coveted vanilla ice cream, combined it with Creme de Cacao, brandy and chocolate syrup, and it was a milkshake that I was more than happy to have at 10am. It’s a frozen concoction that you will enjoy.
- 1 oz. Creme de Cacao
- 1.5 oz. brandy
- 5 large scoops vanilla ice cream
- Chocolate syrup
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Decorate the inside of your glass with chocolate syrup and pour blended drink into cup.
- Drizzle chocolate syrup and sprinkle nutmeg on top.
