Cockburn's Special Reserve porto

Rather more delicate than other ports of my acquaintance (possibly it's the "fine dry finish"), but still so very good.

I only regret having wasted a jigger of it -- 1 and 1/2 ounces -- in a cocktail that had always intrigued me, besides seeming a virtuous way of using up the egg yolks left from Healthy Person's morning's egg white omelettes, -- but that turned out to be dreadful and purple. Try it at your own risk.

Porto flip
1 egg yolk
1 barspoon powdered sugar
3/4 ounce (half a jigger) cream
1 and 1/2 ounce (a jigger) ruby port
1/4 ounce brandy
Shake all the ingredients except nutmeg with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a cocktail glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Throw out. 

Cockburn Special Reserve porto, retail, about $17.00
