Jeffrey’s dad had a bad experience with the Brandy Alexander back in the '70s. Could the cause be related to the ice cream used as an ingredient or the fact that they used a blender to mix up batches? Perhaps it was that they drank three full blenders of the rich concoction?

Originally, it was made with gin as opposed to today’s more popular variation containing brandy. In this episode, Jeffrey makes a Gin Alexander that his dad will never drink but would be proud of.
