Must-Try Cocktail: Brandy Alexander

My husband and I (especially my husband) are big John Lennon fans. Each year on his birthday we make Lennon’s favorite drink, the Brandy Alexander, and listen to John Lennon together. This Friday, October 9th, marks what would have been Lennon’s 75th birthday. And, since I can’t resist a celebration, I’m sharing this classic recipe with you in hopes you’ll celebrate right along with me…

I am he as you are he as you are me
and we are all together.
