Master Class
"Knowledge is power...a good bartender should never stop learning and developing new skills"
A skilful barkeep no more looks at his accoutrements than a practiced typist or pianist peers at the keys, but works with both hands simultaneously, full blast, undimmed by the usual dull requirements of routine.

Popular during Prohibition in the United States, it is believed that the original version was made with bathtub gin (named Alexander) and cream to mask the flavour of the poorly made crude alcohol.


Replace cognac with gin for the original Alexander cocktail.
