A Brandy Alexander is a brandy-based cocktail consisting of cognac and crème de cacao . The drink became popular during the early 20th century. It is a variation of an earlier, gin-based cocktail called simply an Alexander.
The Brandy Alexander is a dessert drink: chocolatey, sweet, creamy and smooth. Drinkers sometimes refer to it as a “milkshake” because the alcohol taste is so light. It’s a popular choice for occasional drinkers, but it’s also beloved by many veteran cocktail drinkers.
Don’t be fooled by the taste, however. Far from being weak, this drink contains a standard serving of brandy, plus an ounce of liqueur. The only mixer is an ounce of half-and-half (or, for those of you in regions where half-and-half isn’t a thing, single cream, or equal parts whole milk + whipping cream).
