 To celebrate the Arrival of the Outline, and having ten thousand words in the document file, I'm having a drink.

I'm officially calling it Something Like A Brandy Alexander.

It has

1 1/2 oz brandy (I didn't have very good brandy, but you work with what you got)
1/2 oz amaretto (the good stuff)
1/2 oz creme de cacao (I had dark, not white, and I don't think it matters)

Put all this on one of the cute roly-poly Mad Men cocktail tumblers (that I lucked into at a garage sale for $1 each) and fill to the bottom of the silver band with half-and-half.

I think the Brandy Alexanders that [personal profile] matociquala  serves at Thanksgiving have Frangelico in them instead. And maybe actual light cream. And definitely nutmeg grated over the top, but I couldn't be arsed to get the nutmeg and the Microplane out.

But it is Something Like A Brandy Alexander, and it's very tasty.
