Brandy Alexander

November 16, 2012

Nightcaps! Just when you’ve cried “Uncle” and slipped away to replace your fancy pants with yoga pants….here come the Brandy Alexanders. Everyone’s around the fire playing a rousing round of the “name game” when Aunt Paula serves up this traditional treat.. A happy ending to a Happy Thanksgiving!

Brandy Alexander

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup brandy (or a bit more to taste)

1/4 cup creme de cacao

nutmeg, freshly grated

Combine ice cream, brandy and cacao in a blender. Grate nutmeg to serve.

Think hostess gift! You can make batches weeks before and freeze. Deliver in a festive container…and make it a tradition.

    Oh my gosh, Tina…how many of these did I serve when I didn’t know what to serve. Yahoo to Aunt Paula! Love reliving a bit of history when it still tastes so good!

    Can you make a slimfast version of these for the morning after? Will go well with the fabulous pumpkin roll!

    Already made for our Thanksgiving Holiday… Aunt Paula thinks that it may be even tastier if the brandy is aged in freezer:) Or rather her excuse to start sipping it now!
    Good for a night cap or to flavor your coffee in the morning!!!
