Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great is yet another riff on the creamy-sweet Alexander recipe. It hails from the 1946 Stork Club Bar Book, and we think it deserves a seat at the bar in the modern era – especially with all the fantastic new coffee liqueurs coming to market lately.
The original recipe called for vodka, but we think it’s much more interesting with cognac or brandy. You can use whichever you like – vodka works for a more dessert-style drink, while cognac or brandy make it a more sophisticated affair.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass.
