When I was in college I remember friends drinking Brandy Alexanders when I was not old enough to join them. The exotic looking drink always intrigued me with its luscious color and nutmeg sprinkle on top. Every time I see vintage cocktail stems they remind me of Brandy Alexanders. I’ll include the recipe at the end of this post for you.
This stem is really special. I can imagine drinking Brandy Alexanders by candlelight with this one!
It is Cambridge Rose Point with a thin gold band around the top rim and foot. Some gold-trimmed glass is gaudy with big wide bands or lots of wear. Cambridge had excellent taste and kept the gold to a discrete little accent, just enough to make this a little bit fancy.
Thanks for visiting our Fancy Fun Friday Linky party. Enjoy your weekend!
Brandy Alexander Recipe (Best Served in Rose Point!)
1 1/2 oz brandy
1 oz dark creme de cacao
1 oz half-and-half
