Review:

Cognac-laced citrusy wine flavours make this somewhat reminiscent of boozy, chilled mulled wine.

History:

Adapted from the following recipe in the 1949 Esquire's Handbook For Hosts book.

(Christmas)
Fill a large tumbler half full with shaved ice. To this add one teaspoon of granulated sugar, one wineglass of port, ½ glass of brandy, ½ glass of Curacao. Stir well with a spoon. Ornament the top with slices of orange, pineapple and split grapes.
