Brandy Alexander

The Brandy Alexander is a dessert drink: chocolatey, sweet, creamy and smooth. Drinkers sometimes refer to it as a “milkshake” because the alcohol taste is so light. It’s a popular choice for those who don’t like the taste of alcohol but want to drink anyway. Serve it as an after-dinner drink, or to guests who want to drink along with everyone else but can’t stomach a stronger cocktail.

Brandy Alexander drink recipe: Brandy, creme de cacao, cream, nutmeg


  • 1 1/2 ounces brandy
  • 1 ounce dark creme de cacao
  • 1 ounce half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Fill a shaker halfway with ice cubes. Pour in the brandy, creme de cacao, and the half-and-half. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Sprinkle the grated nutmeg over the top. Tip: grind a fresh, whole nutmeg over the top of the drink and it’ll have more flavor than ground nutmeg from a jar.
