How to Mix an Alexander

Alexanders are probably the ultimate "chick" drink. They are chocolatey and creamy, and delicious. Mix one up today for someone you love (or would like to love :-), or even for yourself!

A basic Alexander has equal parts of the liquor of your choice, Cr�me de Cacao, and some form of cream. The base liquor makes the biggest difference in the taste, of course, and most recipes will vary as to the exact proportions (see the recipes below).

Normally if you order an "Alexander" in the United States, your server will give you a drink made of Gin, but it never hurts to be specific if you have a preference. Brandy Alexanders are obviously made with Brandy, and so on.

Here are a few Alexander drinks you may want to try:


2 oz Gin
2 oz White Cr�me de Cacao
2 oz Sweet Cream

Brandy Alexander

1 1/2 oz Brandy
1 oz Dark Cr�me de Cacao
1 oz Heavy Cream Grated Nutmeg

Alexander�s Sister

1 oz Gin
1 oz Green Cr�me de Menthe
Fill with Cream

Some fun alterations of the Alexander include:

  • Substitute vanilla ice cream for the cream in any of these drinks
  • When making an Alexander (Gin), change the type of Cr�me de Cacao to Dark � this drink is called an Avalanche
  • Changing out the base liquor to Rum, Whiskey, or Scotch would make a nice Alexander.

A drunken man gets on the bus late one night, staggers up the aisle, and sits next to an elderly woman.

She looks the man up and down and says, "I've got news for you. You're going straight to hell!"

The man jumps up out of his seat and shouts, "Man, I'm on the wrong bus!"
