Forget about brownies and cupcakes; the Brandy Alexander is the ultimate adults-only dessert. Allegedly created in NYC, this decadent nightcap is the perfect way to treat yourself after a “hard day’s night.” Which reminds us, here’s a fun fact to impress your friends: the Brandy Alexander was John Lennon’s drink of choice!

Even though the Brandy Alexander is delicious on its own, we thought a dash of high-quality CBD oil would bring this drink into the 21st century. With all the added benefits this cannabinoid has to offer, we bet you’ll have no issues destressing at the end of the day.

Although you shouldn’t have difficulty finding dark crème de cacao in a liquor store, some customers ask if they could substitute with the more readily-available Kahlúa. While you could use Kahlúa in a Brandy Alexander, it certainly isn’t authentic.

Remember, crème de cacao has strong chocolate flavors (hence the name!). Kahlúa, on the other hand, is a coffee liqueur. Traditional Brandy Alexanders aren’t supposed to have a coffee flavor—but that doesn’t mean it won’t be super tasty!

If you haven’t already noticed, the alternative dairy market is really on the “moove.” Bad jokes aside, we understand not everyone could enjoy this cream-heavy CBD cocktail. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with alternative dairy options in your Brandy Alexander.

Indeed, many vegans have successfully created this cocktail with brandy, chocolate liqueur, and coconut milk. Some people also say almond milk works fine in a non-dairy Brandy Alexander. Whether you go with heavy cream or a non-milk alternative, we bet you’ll still enjoy this sweet nightcap.
