same recipe that John Lennon used to drink in his alcoholic phase after the Beatles broke up. Fucking Yoko.

Add some ice cream for a nice treat, also whipped cream on top with the sprinkled nutmeg looks good for presentation.

I'm out of creme de cacao. I used coconut liqueur. My mom claims it's delicious, haha, but for me it's a bit too high proof. I must have messed with measurement. All in all, it _TASTES_ good.
Love at first sip

I can only find 1 place that makes a good one. All the bars I've been to ask me "what's in one?" Are you kidding me, your the bartender!
Shaken-use cognac for a change.

Instead of half and half, blend your favorite vanilla ice cream with the rest of the recipe to taste.

Got the best Brandy Alexander ( EVER)

leave out the cream de cacao and use Vandermint Liqueur, it's from Holland. Comes in a white bottle with blue wind mills on it. It's a little hard to find so buy 2 while your at it. I carry a bottle with me when I travel and the bartender uses mine.
