There’s no doubt that brandy is a versatile drink. It is made from distilled wine and aged in oak barrels. You can sip it, shake it and consume it with or after a meal. But, did you know that you can chew it too? Yes you can! Here are some mouthwatering brandy dessert recipes that are a great conversation starter and make for an excellent after-meal companion. All you need to do is to bring home a bottle of any of the premium brandy brands in India like Lincoln from Hermes Distillery and get started.
Though it’s an old-school dessert, nothing beats the mouthwatering taste of a brandy cake. To prepare this delicious dessert, you will require the best premium brandy, cream cheese, lemon peel and all other ingredients that are needed to bake a cake. Leave the brandy aside and put the cake on bake. While the cake is getting baked, mix water, cinnamon stick, sugar and lemon peel in a pan and put it to boil. Cook on low heat for 10 mins. Strain it in a cup and mix brandy. Poke holes in the cake using a skewer and drizzle the mix. Your brandy cake is ready to be served. You can top the cake with fruits and cool whip for added flavour.
Frozen Brandy Alexander Pie
This is one of the best desserts made with brandy. A shot of brandy and Kahlúa come together to make this creamy, boozy, frozen dessert that is for adults only. For the crust, you will need cinnamon graham crackers, chopped pecans, sugar and melted butter (unsalted). For the filling, stock up on heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, Kahlúa, premium brandy and vanilla extract. Process the crust constituents in a food processor (except butter) and then combine crumbs with melted butter. The next step is to beat cream at medium speed, combine condensed milk, Kahlúa, brandy, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Carefully line both (crust and filling) in a springform pan and place it in the freezer for 24 hours. Let the clock tick, and your frozen brandy Alexander pie is ready to serve.
Brandy-Stewed Apples or brandied cinnamon apples are the perfect treat for a cold weekend. Though the recipe is simple, the hardest part is to resist the temptation of finishing all the brandy while peeling the apples. Top ingredients include best Indian brandy, cornstarch, apples, butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice.
Mix a tablespoon of brandy with cornstarch and set it aside. Pick a saucepan and mix melted butter and brown sugar, cook it for a few seconds. Add vanilla, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and brandy + cornstarch mix and mix well. Put the apples in the mixtures and cook for another 7-8 minutes. Add two tablespoons of brandy and serve.
Last but not least is a famous British dessert – Brandy Snaps. These crispy biscuits are best served with piped cream or vanilla ice cream. The required ingredients include butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, plain sifted flour, ground ginger, brandy, half lemon, oil (for greasing).
Mix butter, corn syrup, and sugar in a small saucepan and cook on medium heat. Add brandy, ginger and flour after removing the pan from heat. Use a teaspoon to drop the mix on some parchment paper. Bake until golden brown. Cool them for a few seconds and curl each cookie around the handle of a wooden spoon. Fill with cream, sprinkle chocolate and serve them up to your guests.
So, for all the brandy connoisseurs out there, make sure you bookmark these dessert recipes that have a fine hint of brandy and are great for any occasion. Cheers!
Bud Light Kicks Off The Football Season With Two New ‘Dilly Dilly’ Spots
I don’t know about you, but I just cannot get enough of those hilarious Bud Light Dilly Dilly commercials. And lucky for us, Bud Light is back with two new “Dilly Dilly” ads to celebrate the long-awaited return of the NFL football season.
Bud Lights For Everyone:
During the college football kickoff weekend, Bud Light previewed this spot, which depicts our regal King gifting his kingdom’s loyal habitants with his favorite light lager, Bud Light, when one of the pub patrons asks for a mead. The ad highlights the one friend in every group who tries to show off their sophisticated palette, even when it contradicts the group’s preference.
This commercial introduces two new characters from the neighboring kingdom, Count and Countess Pamplemousse. The Pamplemousse’s represent the snobby friends you always seem to invite to a party. Royal Affair celebrates Bud Light as the light lager of choice for a large group of friends (and foes).
Here’s hoping that these two are just the first in a long line of Dilly Dilly commercials that run throughout the season!
Busch Light Gets In On The Pumpkin Spice Latte Craze With ‘Busch Latte’
Last week, Starbucks announced that they were bringing back their Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Busch Light wasted no time in getting in on the action by temporarily rebranding Busch Light as Busch Latte, and sharing a photo of the new can on Twitter.
As expected, Twitter lost their collective minds, with people rushing out to score some Busch Latte of their very own. The only problem? It’s not real. No, it’s just a clever marketing stunt that pokes fun at the PSL craze. Well played Busch Light!
But they didn’t stop there. In addition to the photoshopped Busch Latte cans on Twitter, they also rolled out a series of mobile #BuschLatte billboards in St Louis, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, parking outside of various Starbucks for the ultimate in trolling.
While you can’t get your hands on any physical Busch Latte cans, you can snag some sweet Busch Latte merch here, with a selection of shirts and coozies to choose from.
Here’s hoping that AB actually released some Busch Latte cans, as I’d definitely buy them! 🙂
Bud Light Victory Fridges To Reward Fans Upon Cleveland Browns’ First Win
To say that the Cleveland Browns have been on a losing streak would be putting it mildly. The team has only won a single game in the past two seasons. In fact, Johnny Manziel was the last quarterback to win a game for the Browns. Pretty crazy, right?
Bud Light believes in the Browns though, and to show their support they’ve rolled out a bunch of Victory Fridges across various Cleveland watering holes, filled with ice-cold Bud Light. The only catch? These fridges are currently locked.
Featuring a smart-technology, all of the Victory Fridges will simultaneously unlock after the Browns capture their first regular-season victory and snap their winless streak, giving fans 21 and over the chance to enjoy the sweet taste of victory together. Dilly Dilly!
“The Bud Light Browns ‘Victory Fridge’ is a fun way to celebrate and reward a fanbase that has never wavered in enthusiasm or dedication for their team no matter what happens. We’re proud to show our support for Cleveland, and we’re always looking to bring NFL fans and friends together for memorable experiences. It’s going to be fun to be part of the celebration when the team earns their first victory of the season,” said Andy Goeler, Vice-President of Marketing, Bud Light.
Here’s hoping that Bud Light has a good shelf life, because I just don’t see the Browns’ losing streak ending anytime soon. 🙂
