My Brandy Alexander…

Last night I was about to re-create my mother’s favorite cocktail, the brandy Alexander. I didn’t have crème de cacao, and when I stopped in BevMo! to buy it, they recommended I substitute Kings County Distillery’s chocolate “flavored” whiskey. It turned out to be an excellent suggestion, as the chocolate notes added a new dimension to this classic drink.
