The Bottom Line: January 31st is Brandy Alexander Day! 

The Full Story:

January 31st is Brandy Alexander Day! It’s Brandy Alexander Day! Brandy Alexander is a tasty chocolate cocktail that became popular in the 1920s. Its predecessor was the gin-based Alexander cocktail, which was all but abandoned once the “Alexander #2” arrived on the scene.

According to legend, the first Brandy Alexander cocktail appeared at the wedding of Princess Mary and Viscount Lascelles in London in 1922. It wasn’t long before the cocktail became a pop culture icon.

You can find references to Brandy Alexander in countless movies, television shows, and songs. It was also John Lennon’s drink of choice, but he liked to refer to it as his “milkshake.”

  • Wanna make one? Here’s a classic Brandy Alexander recipe: Combine 1½ oz brandy, 1½ oz crème de cacao, and 2 oz heavy cream or soy creamer. Shake vigorously in a shaker half-filled with ice, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with some delicious nutmeg and enjoy! Happy Brandy Alexander Day!
