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.
Check out my brandy Alexander recipe :
- 1 oz brandy or cognac
- 1 oz King’s County Distillery’s chocolate “flavored” whiskey
- 1 oz pure maple syrup
- 1 oz heavy cream
- a dash of ground nutmeg
Place first four ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a cocktail or martini glass, add a dash of nutmeg and serve.
