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.

“Sangria”

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.
