Brandy Alexander

Smooth As Cream

2 oz
A brandy produced in the wine-region surrounding Cognac, France. Cognac must be twice distilled and aged for at least two years in French oak.
1 oz
A dark brown or clear chocolate-flavored liqueur made from the cacao seed. Crème refers to the creamy texture, but actually contains no dairy. Usually 20-25% ABV.
1 oz
The butterfat layer skimmed from the top of milk before homogenization, contains more than 35% milk fat. Also called single/double cream and whipping cream, although these may also add thickening agents making them less useful for mixing in cocktails. This is used as a foaming agent and for fat-washing in cocktails.
0 grated
The seed from an evergreen tree, used as a grated garnish in many cocktails. A must for egg-nog and egg-nog like drinks. In sufficent amounts it gives a numbing sensation.

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake until chilled. Strain into a coupe and garnish with a grated nutmeg. #shake #straight

John Lennon lent this cocktail a rather unsavory reputation during his bar crawl in 1974. The cocktail has persisted through the age of ‘non cream’ drinks and made a notable resurgence.
