Tips To Make Brandy Alexander With Ice Cream
✅ Creme de Cacao used to be the original ingredient to make an original Brandy Alexander. However, you can replace this with Chocolate Syrup if you do not have this one. After all, you need chocolate flavor.
✅ Instead of Creme de cacao, you can also use any Coffee Liqueur or even non-alcoholic Chocolate or Coffee flavored syrup.
✅ This Cocktail isn’t something you drink for the alcoholic intake. Instead, you have it for the taste, so try any decent brands for the Brandy. Just make sure you do not go too cheap!
✅ Using Cognac, a fine form of Brandy is great, if you can afford it!
✅ Chilled Martini Glass is the best to drink this cocktail. Try this one!
✅ Instead of grated nutmegs, you can also use Chocolate curls and whipped cream for Garnishing.
