This Brandy Alexander cocktail is dessert in a glass. The cognac, crème de cacao, and cream blend together to form a perfectly balanced drink that satisfies any sweet tooth.
You may have heard of an Alexander cocktail before. It mixes gin with creme de cocao and cream. A very similar drink to this, the Brandy Alexander uses brandy or Cognac instead of gin.
If you like creamy, chocolatey drinks you’re going to love this one. It’s not too sweet – the Cognac really balances the flavors.
The two types of alcohol in this cocktail are brandy and creme de cocao. For these, I typically use an affordable Cognac like Hennessy VS or a VS or XO Brandy from E & J. Either of these, or another affordable brandy will work fine in this cocktail.
I use Bols clear Creme de Cocao. It has good flavor and is easy to find. There’s a dark version as well that you can use, though it will give a darker tint to this cocktail. De Kruyper also is a good brand.
