I can still remember the day he was born, wow. Boy these years go by really fast. I have to say, I think he's ready for high school. He's an easy going guy, great student and very athletic. I don't think the transition will be too hard for him at all. He makes me happy.
I received an email from Ross at Hire The Barman this morning informing me that today is Brandy Alexander Day. He included the chart below on the Brandy Alexander to share with you all.
After reading his email I decided to move the Brandy Alexander up on my list and make it today. I have made a Gin Alexander before which I did like, so I was excited to try this one as well.
Glad I did!!
I am not a huge brandy drinker.....I'm not even a little brandy drinker (I leave the brandy drinking to my husband). I have to say, and no it's not because it's "Brandy Alexander Day", I like this cocktail, I really do!
I would skip the nutmeg, but the rest, YUM!! I'm sure the nutmeg adds to the cognac in this cocktail and I'm sure for 80% of you it would be great, but I'm simply not a fan of nutmeg on cocktails. Thank You Ross for sending me your recipe!!
- 2 oz cognac
- 1 1/2 oz dark creme de cacao
- 1 1/2 oz cream
- dash of nutmeg
