Brandy Alexander – Perfect Dessert Cocktail

Well, it’s only four more days until the big day. Raise your hand if you’re ready. As much as I would love to tell y’all that I am 100% complete, I can’t. I’ve been slightly derailed the past couple of days because I’m sick. Today I plan to travel an hour into town and finish up the little bit that I have left to do. On the home-front I am 100% ready. Recipes are laid out, grocery shopping is done, baking is complete and all of the family favorites are on the list. We celebrate every Christmas Eve with a nice dinner followed by dessert. I usually make my favorite dessert cocktail – Brandy Alexander.

Brandy Alexander’s are easy to make and they are creamy and delicious. The creme de cocoa and the white chocolate shavings add a light choclately flavor.

The alcohol is not overpowering at all.

Feel free to add as much white chocolate and nutmeg as you wish.

We are definitely a more-chocolate-please group! I tend to hold back on adding too much nutmeg.

To create the chocolate shavings I used a cheese slicer. I allow the chocolate to warm up a little bit in my hand first for easier cutting. Another one of our fave dessert cocktails is a Let it Snowtini – you can get that recipe HERE.

Have you had a Brandy Alexander before? You won’t be disappointed with this recipe…I promise.

    Just the name alone, Brandy Alexander, makes me think I should be drinking this with elbow-length gloves on and my hair up in a chignon. Plus, who can resist any cocktail that has a lovely bit of cream in it?
