Brandy Cleopatra

Everyone should have one of these drinks. My favorite restaurant in Seattle is called Cafe Septieme. I love the deep red walls and big booths and how it gets pleasantly full but never do you have to wait. Some people have different feelings than me about this restaurant but let me tell you, it's a great neighborhood cafe. I lived in Capitol Hill for 10 years and many of the waiters know me by name, what I drink and which 3 things on their menu I choose from. Anyway, one of my favorite winter drinks (sometime I will tell you about my seasonal quirks) is a Brandy Cleopatra. This drink is the best. It comes in a wine glass and is frothy milk and brandy. It is a delight.

When fall starts settling in like it is now, there is nothing I like better than to go to the Cafe Septieme with Blade and have steak and a nice warm (I forgot to mention it comes warmed up!) Brandy Cleopatra. It just shows me that my favorite season is here and it's time to settle in to the cold and some good strong drinks with dinner.

I'm sure I don't need to tell you that the Brandy Alexander is the official drink of Sean Nelson & His Mortal Enemies. We basically had to stop playing shows because hardly any bars will serve it. I should've made an exception for the Brandy Cleopatra, clearly... back to work!

The recipe I am going to share with you today is about 350 years old! A great favourite from the Cape where the first brandy from Cape grapes were distilled in 1672! We have come a very long way since then when it comes to the quality of our brandy, but still, Cape Brandy Pudding remains an old time favourite :) Growing up in South Africa is great fun with all the recipes your mother makes and teaches you during your younger years!
