Coffee Cocktail

This is another one of those misleading cocktails like the Chocolate Cocktail. Both are port and brandy drinks. In this case, I opted for American brandy. The topping of this misleadingly non-caffeinated drink is nutmeg sprinkles, not coffee, and there is no yellow Chartreuse.

What there is, however is an egg yolk. Good for texture and thickness. Don't over-ice this cocktail in the blender. It stands up nicely like a smoothie if you don't. You'll freeze the egg white, however, with too much ice.
  • 3 oz. ruby port
  • 1 oz. brandy (Christian Brothers VSOP used)
  • 2-3 dashes white Curacao
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • grated nutmeg
Combine all ingredients except nutmeg with light ice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled wine glass and sprinkle with nutmeg.
