Brandy Alexander (traditional)

The Alexander was originally a gin based drink but over time has morphed into Brandy cocktail. Known to be a favorite of John Lennon, this is a great after-dinner drink.


  • 1 oz brandy
  • 1 oz dark brown creme de cacao
  • 1 oz fresh cream
  • Nutmeg
  • Ice


  • Cocktail glass
  • Shaker


  1. In a shaker half-filled with ice, combine the brandy, creme de cacao, and cream.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with the nutmeg.
