Imbibing Mr. Boston: Hot Brandy Alexander

Hot Brandy Alexander

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.

Hot Brandy Alexander
0.75 oz brandy
0.75 oz dark creme de cacao
4 oz. steamed milk
Garnish: Whipped cream, chocolate shavings

Pour ingredients into pre-heated Irish coffee glass.  Top with cream and chocolate.
