The Brandy Alexander first appeared in or around 1922 in London, so it is said for Princess Mary and Viscount Lascelles Wedding.  However, like all Classic Cocktails it can be attributed to a number of people, including the Drama Critic Alexander Woollcott and even after Tsar Alexander II.


Glassware For This Cocktail

Coupe - Champagne Saucer
This Cocktail glass also known as "The Champagne saucer glass" was first created and used widely in the 1930's. Characterized by a tall stem and wide bowl. The Cocktail drinker's nose inhales the aroma, fragrance and bouquet of the cocktail - be it heady or delicate from the expansive bowl. The Coupe Cocktail glass was the original Champagne glass for literally the first half of the 20th century before the Champagne flute became popular in the 1950's and 1960's and subsequently took over as the glass to drink Champagne.
