Commander William Riker:  ONE IN EVERY PORT

(vodka, mulling spices, simple syrup, port)

Pour mulling spices and six ounces of vodka into a jar, seal, and store in a cool, dark place for a few days.  Pour one ounce of simple syrup and one ounce of your infused vodka over ice in a cocktail shaker.  Shake thoroughly, then strain.  This mixture keeps things interesting—you stir it into every port you drink.  It’s particularly good when things (like your port) get heated; makes you think of the old homestead.
