TASTE.53 | BRANDY ALEXANDER


Seriously.  If you live anywhere in the continental US, it's been freezing.  Even in the land of nuts and honey (LA).  While I'm all up for a cold winter holiday season, I am not into the bitter temps, icy roads and frozen snow.  Anyone else feel this way, or is my "I'm done with 2013" side shining through?  If you find yourself on my side of the fence, this drink by Honestly Yum will help get you through those frosty nights.  It's super easy to make, and by all means, if you want add an extra shot or two of brandy to it, be my guest.  Enjoy!

a regular ol' brandy will make the difference
