Combining two of Wisconsin’s specialties – brandy and dairy – seems like an excellent idea, especially when vanilla and nutmeg play a part.
2 oz brandy
1½ oz half-and-half or heavy cream
1 oz simple syrup
½ tsp vanilla extract
Freshly grated nutmeg
Combine the brandy, cream, simple syrup and vanilla extract in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until the shaker is frosty. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, and garnish with the grated nutmeg.
