According to pop culture history the classic Brandy Alexander cocktail was a favorite drink of John Lennon who referred to it as a ‘milkshake’ on occasion. This really tastes more like delectable chocolate milk with hint of amaretto flavor and aroma of grated nutmeg than the classic Brandy Alexander, but it’s a Mocktail. No brandy added here. The martini glass is what really spruces this drink recipe up to the adult playing field level.
