Brandy Alexander Day: Cheers!
When it comes to unusual holidays, Jan. 31 is a biggy! Not only is it Scotch Tape Day, Backward Day and Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, it is also a great big food holiday. Jan. 31 also celebrates a much-maligned vegetable, a sinfully delicious drink and a creamy cocktail. It's also Eat Brussels Sprouts Day, National Hot Chocolate Day and (National) Brandy Alexander Day!
Typically made with brandy, cream and creme de cacao, some believe the delicious after-dinner drink was actually created for King George and Queen Mary's oldest daughter's wedding to Viscount Lascelles. It is also believed to have been one of John Lennon's favorite drinks.
If you're looking for a little decadent delight on a cold winter's night, why not whip up one or two of the delicious cocktail recipes in honor of National Brandy Alexander Day?
