A lovely name, and appropriate, for a lovely drink idea. This is pretty much a Gin Milk Punch concept with the addition of fino sherry. Much of the spice does call to mind renaissance flavors of the spice trade. There's tarragon, juniper, citrus, thyme, and berries from the gin. Then there's nutty grape flavors from the sherry and nutmeg for the garnish.

The worry with creamy drinks is that they will be too heavy. Really only 1/5 of the drink is cream. The rest is a lot of light spirits that come through almost as if you are drinking them neat. So this doesn't have to be a dessert drink, though that's a pretty good time to have it.
  • 2 oz. gin (Vigilant used)
  • 1/2 oz. fino sherry
  • 1/2 oz. half-and-half
  • fresh grated nutmeg
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of ice. Grate nutmeg on top.
