Alexander Cocktail

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

Finish your party evening with a glass of this creamy cocktail flavoured with cognac and creme de cacoa. Adapted from a recipe from Nestlé Brazil after buying a can of table cream and trying to figure out how to use it. ;-) Table cream has 18% milk fat so half-and-half is a reasonable substitute.

Our girls night party broke up about 4 hours ago. Was this drink ever good! This was my first time making anything with table cream, wow was that rich! It is thicker then half-and-half and you could use the 1/2 & 1/2 but you'd not get the full effect of the calories! lol We will have these again on another girls night at my house. Thanks for posting. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2007
