How to make:

SHAKE gin and sugar with ice and strain into chilled glass. Lastly POUR the port wine which will sink through drink and mix, leaving a thin clear layer at the top.

Garnish:

Dust with grated nutmeg

Comment:

Either drink through the layers of stir before consuming. Fabulously old-school in style, this sweetened port and old tom gin drink resembles chilled mulled wine.

Origin:

The Sangaree takes its name from the Spanish word for blood, Sangre. The drink’s origins date back to the early 1700s and it first appears in writing in a 1736 issue of the British Gentleman's Magazine, "... a punch seller in the Strand had devised a new punch made of strong Madeira wine and called Sangre”.
