I used to live near Galena myself... many years ago. So it's almost like a homecoming for me, too.

I was thinking about making a chocolate mousse for dessert, but we are almost out of sugar. So, I made Brandy Alexanders for dessert. They were good, but I want to see if I can make them better. Aw shucks, gotta make some more.

Thanks, TL. I knew it was "European style" but didn't know those details. More fat - c'est moi.

Second round of brandy Alexanders were better: more creme de cacao, less brandy (same total amount of booze) and 1/2 the amount of cream. Also switched from 15% cream to 40% cream. That was really good. Next, I will see if I can find one of those premium chocolate liqueurs.

Try swapping out the cream for some premium vanilla or chocolate ice cream, then buzz it in the blender!

That sounds like a really good idea. I would probably whisk it rather than use a blender - less clean up.
