Quick one - cocktails to go with a fig cake?

We're having some friends over this afternoon and my wife made an olive oil fig cake. What would be a fun cocktail to go with?
Things we have:
various liqueurs, including bitters
a bottle of port
ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, etc
lemons, limes, simple syrup, maraschino cherries, etc.
I can make a liquor store run if needed, but bonus points if it can be made with stuff we already have.
I'm thinking that something bourbon or dark-rum based would be good, or maybe a cocktail with the port (we could also drink the port, I know -- but I think a cocktail would be fun).
Other important information: we're in Seattle and it is somewhat dreary, so I don't feel any need to make the drink particularly "summery".
