I began drinking Brandy Alexander’s back in the days when we belonged to our local Country Club. Brandy Alexander’s were the perfect frosty boozy drink to enjoy after a big Sunday Supper at The Club and no one really wanted to go home and think about Monday. You could linger the table with your friends and slowly sip this spiked dessert in a beautiful brandy snifter.
My version has a slight coffee taste- it’s dreamy, frothy, thick and creamy. After we built our family home with a big pool and our middle daughter stopped playing golf, we resigned from the Club, so I needed to find a way to get my Brandy Alexander kick on my own. Hence, this recipe. Even though this is a frozen drink and it’s now fall, the coffee and brandy lend themselves well to Fall flavors.
Sunday Suppers, now that we are empty nesters, are often spent eating out after going to 5:30 church and then having a cocktail. We still linger at the table though- not wanting to think about Monday.
