Foodie Byte: Some recipes for Brandy Alexander call for ice cream, and many call for at least a dusting of grated nutmeg over the top. We remained true to the recipe in the cookbook by not including those ingredients.

Preparation

  1. Combine ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker and shake well.
  2. Strain into a 4-ounce cocktail glass.
  3. Yield: 1 drink
