1 1/2 OZ Brandy
1 OZ Creme de Cacao
1 OZ Cream (I used Almond milk)
Put all three ingredients into a shaker
Add ice and shake till cold
Strain into glass
Garish with nutmeg and/or grated chocolate
For when you can’t decide between dessert or an after dinner drink
Literally a dessert in a glass
Smells like Nutmeg and Chocolate ( I wonder why)
Sweet but not too rich
Like those brandy filled chocolates but with a better balance.
Cream is much better than almond milk, but for those lactose intolerant it’s still good.
Yummy. Good after a meal or in front of a fire (Reminds me of winter)
Can sneak up on you.
I tried this as a Bourbon Alexander as well. Basically just replacing the brandy with bourbon. The bourbon just overpowers the other ingredients, and makes me just wish I had used it in a different cocktail. Just roll with the brandy for this one.
