While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

It may only be Thursday, but it’s the end of the month and we're awful thirsty. A Brandy Alexander will surely fit the bill.

A Brandy Alexander is a cocktail made from cognac, cream and crème de cacao. The classic quaff is the later version of a Prohibition-era, gin-based drink with crème de cacao and cream simply called the Alexander.

Whom the drink is named after remains a bit of a mystery. Some stories claim it was after Russian tsar Alexander II, while others say it was created to honor Princess Mary's royal wedding to Viscount Lascelles (who was, weirdly enough, not named Alexander at all).

Any which way you Alexander, it’s a yummy, chocolaty libation sure to warm you up and make you sing.
