Great Alexander recipe
Scan me to take me with you
I Recently invented this drink last week since I didnt have one, and I just started bartending. My name being Alexander Theus, "The Great Alexander" seemed like a great name for a drink...But I made a point to try and incorporate my heritage into to it. I'm about 35% scottish, so the Drambuie takes care of more than enough...especially since my Grandfather lived till 78 years old and he drank scotch whisky every day of his life, and smoked cigarettes. The Blackberry Brandy was a favorite home remedy for sickness, according to my other grandfather...who snuck some to my little sister several years ago when she was sick abd conventional medicines werent working. The sweet & Sour helps to soften the high alcohol content, and the Energy Drink is my personal favorite. It helps keep the senses sharp while adding carbonation and fruity flavor to the alcohol. And topping it off with grenadine and cherries just brings back the memories of kiddie cocktails that we would drink when we were too young to drink booze.
Its a beautiful drink, that can visually and tastefullly altered with different colors and flavors of energy drink.
Fill a regular plastic cup or high ball cup 3/4 with ice.
pour 3/4 shot of Drambuie, and 3/4 of blackberry brandy.
pour about 1/2 shot of Sweet & Sour.
top off with redbull, monster, or availible energy drink
add a splash of grenadine either right down the middle and it will go straight to the alcohol, or around the edge and it will mix with the energy drink.
Add 3 cherries
