    Last time I went to a funeral they had this incredible drink, it was so nice (and I got rather merry off it too :p: ), I asked my mum and she said it was sherry. But I just bought a bottle of cream sherry (they had cream or dry but cream said on the bottle it was sweeter) and although it's pretty damn nice it's not a touch on this other stuff I had. It was a little lighter in colour than red wine and very sweet but also quite a high alcohol content - it went down really easy. Lovely stuff I want to buy some. Anyone help?

    Port? It's like red wine but a lot sweeter and stronger (and it's lush!)

    I guess I'm going to have to buy a bottle of port to test :p:

    I've only tried port in a cheeky vimto (I think?) and it was pretty nice so maybe. Do they normally serve port at funerals? there was lots of old people there and they seemed to like the drink too.

    thanks

    Looking at the wiki page I don't think it was that. It didn't taste of spices, it was just really sweet.

    Old people are partial to port. Try it with some strong cheese and crackers/baguette, for the full taste experience.

    Port or a sweet Madeira would be my guess. Marsala?

    Maybe wait around until someone else crokes it, then try some again and remember to ask some one?
