5 small-batch cocktails to toast the holidays even if you aren't gathering

By Sharyn Jackson, Star Tribune (Minneapolis) on

Published in Entertainment News

1/2 ounce ruby port

1/2 ounce. creme de cacao, such as Tempus Fugit

1/2 ounce simple syrup (see Note)

1 ounce heavy cream

Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish



Shake all the ingredients (except the garnish) very well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top.


Serves 1.

Note: Anise and blackcurrant pair as beautifully together as a hammock and a snooze. Add the gentle refreshment of citrus and bubbly, and that hazy happiness of a southern French holiday is just one short sip away. From "Fizz," by Olly Smith (Clarkson Potter).
