    More than 40 years after it was made, Edward Blake's The Days of Wine and Roses remains a as gripping a picture of alcoholism as was ever crafted. Anyone who has seen the film may well remember that lovely Lee Remick's character didn't begin her descent with raw gin or even the proverbial martini but with the Brandy Alexander - a good reason never to have more than oneof this seductive little sipper.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    1 ounce brandy
    1 ounce crème de cacao
    1 ounce heavy cream
    1/2 cup cracked ice
    Garnish (optional): light dusting of cocoa powder, cinnamon, or nutmeg

      METHOD

    Combine all ingredients in blender, whir for about half a minute, and serve immediately. This recipe can be increased to make multiple drinks but, as with all frozen drinks, do not make more than will be served at once.

      VARIATIONS

    Variation: For a creamier treat, replace the he crème de cacao
    1 ounce heavy cream
    1/2 cup cracked ice
    Garnish (optional): fresh mint leaf or dusting of cocoa powder.
    Combine all ingredients in blender, whir for about half a minute, and serve immediately. This recipe can be increased to make multiple drinks but, as with all frozen drinks, do not make more than will be served at once.
    Variation 1: As with the Brandy Alexander, heavy cream and ice may be replaced with 3/4 cup ice cream.
    Variation 2: If you'd like your grasshopper to have a bit more kick, add 1 ounce of vodka to make a Vodka Grasshopper - and leave the ice cream alone.
    Variation 3: To make a Mexican Grasshopper, substitute 1 ounce coffee liquer for the crème de cacao.
