There's little about this cocktail that evokes that wide western state. I doubt that cowpokes would enjoy the Montana much either, so I am a little mystified by the name. Clearly, the bartender involved was going for a sweet highball drink that was spirits only--something that could be stirred and served on ice so the rodeo clowns wouldn't spill it when they ride on the mechanical bull.
  • 2 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. ruby port
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • several dashes of Angostura bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled highball glass full of fresh ice.
