Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Brandy Alexander

The Kipfel                                             Looking back to look ahead...
National Brandy Alexander Day

Decadent delight on a cold winter's night!

When one hears the name Brandy Alexander, a person might readily come to mind with question as to who is he or she? Of course, for anyone familiar with cocktails knows it is not a person at all but still may wonder who was the eponymous chap named Alexander known worldwide as a specialty drink? Definitely not Alexander the Great for Alexander III of Macedon did not carry the first name, or any name part for that matter, of Brandy.

Classic Brandy Alexander
2 oz Cognac or other fine aged brandy
1 oz Dark crème de cacao
1 oz Cream
Garnish: Freshly grated nutmeg
Glass: Chilled Cocktail Glass
