The Brandy Alexander is a luxurious, creamy cocktail that has been popular throughout the 20th century. It is a brandy version of the gin-based Alexander cocktail and, honestly, brandy does make the better Alexander.

The cream and creme de cacao are a perfect pairing for the rich taste of a decent brandy, particularly on cold winter nights. The Brandy Alexander is also a luscious after dinner drink that pairs well with chocolate desserts.
