2 oz Brandy (This doesn't have to be amazing)
1 T Ruby Port
1 pn Nutmeg (optional, as garnish)

Pour over ice in a mixing glass //

Serve in a small wineglass //

garnish with nutmeg (optional)


This is a serious but surprisingly drinkable cocktail that responds well to variation. Grand Marnier works well with ruby port, but Cointreau or just triple sec and tawny port also make a great combination.

You can also serve neat, which has become known as 'the winter drink' among our circle.
