Creamy and refreshing and oh so sophisticated in a Martini Glass, I make my on camera debut with the first cocktail I ever tasted… the Brandy Alexander.

Coffee Note

We used BIGGBY Best. We’re particularly excited about this blend because 30% of it comes Farm Direct from our partners in Nicaragua, the El Recreo Coffee Estate. You can learn more about El Recreo, the Ferry family and the wonderful work they are doing in Nicaragua here.

  2. Add to blender, with ice cream.
  3. Blend until well mixed.
