Drinks Meet Ultra Alexander

Some drink names are an instant clue as to just how that drink will taste. When it comes to this cocktail, “ultra” doesn’t begin to describe just how decadent it is! As for Alexander, we don’t know who he was but he was obviously a lot of fun. Treat yourself this #Tuesdayboozeday, and make friends with a new drink.

 

Ingredients

Ice

2 ounces brandy

2 ounces chocolate liquor

1 tbsp whipping cream

1 tbsp chocolate syrup

 

Optional garnish

Cocoa powder

Chocolate shavings

 

Directions

Get out your best cocktail shaker and fill to the top with ice. Cover with brandy, liquor, whipping cream and syrup. Shake it like a polaroid picture, strain and serve in a glass. Since this recipe makes one serving, it’s up to you if you want to rim your glass with cocoa, or top your cocktail with chocolate shavings.

Sometimes, a good night out leads to new friendships. While tequila may be a bad influence, the Ultra Alexander will surely make you feel great. Full, but great.
