Alexander the Great is yet another riff on the creamy-sweet Alexander recipe which initially was created using Gin. It hails from the 1946 Stork Club Bar Book. Alexander the Great followed the original recipe with a Vodka base and since then Alexander’s Big Brother, Sister, and Brandy Alexander and more have been created – all tasty and laced with liquor.
