Brandy-Alexander-Recipe The Bottle Club

There's always room for a dessert cocktail, right? This is an indulgent classic that is one of our favourites here at The Bottle Club.

Like most cocktails, the origins are a bit hazy. There are a number of conflicting stories about who invented the drink, and who exactly Alexander was, but the one thing we do know is that before there was a Brandy Alexander, there was just the Alexander, which was made with Gin only. 

We know you're here to learn how to make this simple yet delicious cognac cocktail recipe, and not a history lesson! Let's get down to it as we're seriously drooling at the thought of this creamy, sweet, boozy treat.
