    off topic Jeremiah—i just wanted to ask u a question since u know so much bout MM… i went to goggle to ask how to make a Brandy Alexander and one of the Links on the goggle page was that the Brandy Alexander was a favorite drink in MM…

    so my question is “Who” likes and drinks the Brandy Alexander in MM?…it must be a girl since its a basically a girls’s drink…Betty?, Megan?, Joan?, Peggy?…do u know who?….Thank you…☺…

    In episode 11 of season 1 Peggy Ordered a Brandy Alexander. I am not sure if it is her favorite drink but it is a popular drink for many people living in Manhattan.
