The next new thing to get?

Over-hyped, perhaps?

I don't really care. Just buy one using my link.

#13 Alexander Cocktail No. 1

Yes, you did read that right.   I'm skipping past #11 because Chartreuse is expensive and #12 because it's almost the same as the Alabama Fizz.   

There is a reference to this drink from a 1915 drink book, making this a very old drink. 

Alexander Cocktail No.1

1oz Dry Gin  (Bombay Sapphire)
1oz Creme de Cacao  (Jacquin's)
1oz Sweet Cream  ( Used 1/2 and 1/2)

Shake well with cracked ice and strain into a 4oz cocktail Glass.

It's quite nice but the gin flavor doesn't tend to blend well with the two other ingredients.   Maybe the No 2 will blend better.
