As the weather gets cooler I find myself more and more drawn to creamy drinks. Something about the smooth, silky texture screams luxurious self-indulgence and when made and consumed at home they save me from stepping out in the chilly night air.
My current obsession is a classic cocktail that’s stood the test of time: the Brandy Alexander. Lightly sweet and supremely creamy, this drink is the perfect accompaniment to a good book and a crackling fire.
1 oz brandy
1 oz crème de cacao
1 oz heavy cream
1. Shake all ingredients with ice.
2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Once you try this dessert drink it’s sure to keep you coming back for more– just make sure to do a couple extra squats to make up for the calorie overload!
