With equal parts gin, crème de cacao and cream, the Gin Alexander Cocktail couldn’t be easier to shake together. A sweet hint of chocolate and fragrant gin make for a smooth, heady drink. The nutmeg is a nice touch.

I think a band called Passed Out can handle some Gin Alexander Cocktails. More importantly, after listening to “yeah... it’s my birthday, don’t remind me”, I think they could use a drink. It’s from the album ‘The Aforementioned and How it Pertains to Absolutely Nothing’, a title as quirky as the post-punkish gems it contains.
Check out Passed Out on Facebook where you can learn of 2 upcoming shows in NY. You can buy their music on Bandcamp.
