with Kings County Brandy

“CC Brandy Alexander”

The Brandy Alexander is a drink dating back to the 1920’s. It was rumoured to be John Lennon’s favourite drink. Here is our riff on the classic cocktail using our own craft spirits.

Place ice in a coupe or martini glass for the purpose of chilling the glass.

  • In a shaker or mason jar, add 2oz of Kings County Brandy. A wonderful brandy collaboration we did with Dunhams Run Estate Winery
  • Add 1oz of Chicken Bones Liqueur ™. (The original drink calls for crème de cacao, but it’s difficult to find a quality one in our market. Luckily our chocolate liqueur series are quality chocolate liqueurs made in a similar crème fashion.)
  • Add 1oz of half and half dairy cream.

Cover and dry shake for about 30 seconds (no ice). This will help give the cocktail a nice frothy consistency.

Empty the ice from your chilled glass and pour your cocktail into it.

Grate fresh nutmeg over the drink.


In a large beverage dispenser:

  • Add 3 litres of Cranberry juice,
  • 3 litres of a local red wine (dry wine works best)
  • 1 pint of brandy (We recommended our Kings County Brandy)
  • 1 litre of ginger ale. (Ginger ale is optional, but an excellent way to back sweeten if you find the Sangria to be sour or tart.)
  • Add citrus wheels from 4-6 oranges.

Stir and let it sit.

Fill a glass with ice and add the Sangria.

Garnish with citrus wheels. We used dehydrated oranges.
