Cream-based cocktails can be cloying and heavy, and we found most recipes for the brandy Alexander—brandy, crème de cacao and heavy cream—to be no exception.

We like to double-strain, which helps remove small shards of ice (that’s true of any dairy-based cocktail). Use a wand-style grater for the nutmeg.
