Vintage Cocktails #51: The Chatham Hotel Special

Our next cocktail is the Chatham Hotel Special. One of the signature cocktails of this former hotel, this is a great after dinner/dessert drink. The brandy and port play together nicely, and the cream and hint of chocolate provided by the creme de cacao give this drink just a hint of sweetness. It’s not cloying at all, and is altogether an excellent cocktail. Cheers!
