The Alexander was originally a gin based drink but over time has morphed into Brandy cocktail. Known to be a favorite of John Lennon, this is a great after-dinner drink.
- 1 oz brandy
- 1 oz dark brown creme de cacao
- 1 oz fresh cream
- Cocktail glass
- In a shaker half-filled with ice, combine the brandy, creme de cacao, and cream.
- Shake well.
- Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with the nutmeg.
