Hazlenut Alexander

Hazlenut Alexander.

A delicious seduction. The praliné of cocktail art. The crowning glory of the Alexander family: the Hazlenut Alexander.

40 ml Vallendar Haselnuß „Das Original“
20 ml Dutch Cacao
20 ml cream

Preparation: Shaken.

Alternatively and currently preferred by us:

40 ml Hiebl Piemonteser Haselnussgeist
Homemade Crème de Cacao (3 parts Hiebl Schokogeist : 2 parts sugar syrup (2:1))
20 ml cream

This delicacy was thought up by Mario Kappes, who has been propagating the use of eau de vies (Obstbrand and Geist) in the bar for years.

Even if this drink does not seem really innovative and original at first glance – it is nothing more than a variation of the Alexander Cocktail – this composition shows a masterful play with the flavours of the ingredients used. This composition is simply brilliant. For us, the crowning glory of the Alexanders!

It should be mentioned that there are other drinks with the same name that use brandy, hazelnut liqueur and other ingredients, but our favourite is this version with hazelnut distillate.

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
