Brandy Alexander With Ice Cream

A Brandy Alexander With Ice Cream? Yes Please!

Brandy Alexander


Ice Cream Alexander

Made by Jena Ellenwood

Call me a grandma all you want, I love my Brandy Alexanders! This classic is a decadent, boozy, single serving of dessert and I am all about it. Rich cocoa, the deep spice of brandy, a hint of orange, and luscious cream.  Naturally, adding ice cream to this cocktail was a logical leap, and one that will have you blending these up by the pitcher!
