Brandy Port Sangaree

Brandy + port + orange = Winter Cocktail
2 oz Brandy (This doesn't have to be amazing)
1 T Ruby Port
1 T Grand Marnier
Instructions
Pour over ice in a mixing glass // Serve in a small wineglass // garnish with nutmeg (optional)
Notes
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.
