Sunset Cocktail: Brandy Alexander Day, January 31st


2 oz Maison Rouge Cognac
1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1 oz Cream
dash Nutmeg garnish

Shake with Ice and strain into a chilled Cocktail glass. Garnish with Nutmeg.

For National Brandy Alexander Day I'm making the first Brandy Alexander I've ever made outside of Bartending School.This one was made with Almond Milk which did add a noticeable, but certainly not unpleasant flavor. It just didn't add the super richness actual cream would have. I didn't really mind that at all.

A sweet desert drink with a lot of flavor but it's perhaps lost on me. While I do love a nice piece of Chocolate, especially with Almonds, I've never really liked Chocolate alcoholic beverages. I even hate chocolate stouts. Maybe I'd like it better if I had a Dark Chocolate Liqueur.

One thing to take note of, I've added a Google Calendar for all of the Sunset Cocktail Holidays that you can check out on the side. Follow along and maybe you can see what's coming ahead if you weren't one of the 5 people who actually picked up a physical copy of The 2017 Sunset Cocktails Calendar. It's fun to fund fresh reasons to drink. As I look at it I seem to have missed Bubble Bath Day...
