For the last of the great Alexanders, we have a hot drink. Even with a hefty amount of steamed milk in this cocktail, the brandy cuts through with a deep rich flavor. I particularly like the addition of shaved chocolate as a garnish. This is a great alternative to the venerable Irish Coffee, especially for those who don’t need the caffeine or enjoy the taste of coffee. Try this next time you want dessert in a glass.
