IMG_7391 So, where were we?  Oh yeah.  Brandy drinks.

The next one listed in the Mr. Boston index is the Brandied Port.  or I guess you could call it the Ported Brandy, as the ratios are exactly the same.  It’s a fairly simple drink, but absolutely spot on.  I love the depth that the tawny port adds, plus the touch of maraschino liqueur sweetens it up while at the same time giving it a slightly nutty character.  Lastly, the orange wheel serves a dual purpose.  Visually, it brightens the drink to a summery warmth, while at the same time giving a dandy perfume of orangey goodness.  I could drink a few of these no problem.  Enjoy!
