B&B stands for Brandy & Benedictine. It is one of the icons of fine drinking and is a true classic cocktail. Often, a B&B is served on the rocks, although some prefer it straight up and other prefer it slightly warmer (prep your snifter with warm water, dumping it before adding the spirits). It is almost always served in a brandy snifter and this also makes an ideal after dinner drink or nightcap.
The producers of Benedictine also make a pre-mixed B&B, which is really good, but if you have a favorite brandy you will find that a far better option.
