History of the drink
The Alexander cocktail has been a traditional libation for more than a century. Gin, Crème de Cacao and heavy cream are the main ingredients of the Alexander. Typically, it is offered in a martini glass. The original Alexander calls for equal amounts of gin, Crème de Cacao and cream, but our version is a bit softer. The first mention of the drink was published in Hugo Ensslin's 1916 book, Recipes for Mixed Drinks. So, it's believed to have been created sometime in the early Twentieth Century.
