January 31: Brandy Alexander Day

Today is Brandy Alexander Day.  I've never had a Brandy Alexander, but it does seem like a tasty drink - just take a look at this highly reviewed recipe from Drinks Mixer.  This recipe from AlcoMixer adds grated chocolate and uses cream instead of half-and-half.  Brandy Alexander is another drink that might be named after a person- in this case, the Russian tsar Alexander II, but it seems it was invented for a royal wedding.  A closely related cousin of the Brandy Alexander is the Panama Cocktail which uses white creme de cacao instead.
