I know that Brandy Alexanders were a big hit on the dinner table in the 20’s when dessert cocktails were a bit more simple, and sipping on a milky nightcap was a classy way to wrap up a meal.

But with the rise of the craft cocktail, this vintage after-dinner treat has fallen out of fashion, and it has slowly turned into a forgotten classic.

However, last week we made this roasted chestnut infused milk, and I felt a Brandy Alexander renaissance was in the winds.

Mikey and I wanted to give you the gift of a delicious Christmas cocktail and we saw this to be the perfect opportunity to revive the Brandy Alexander – chestnut style.

Chock full of surprises, this chestnut spin on the classic is less sweet and more balanced than its predecessor, and I would personally fancy one of these following a heavy family feast.
