We’ve all heard of champagne cocktails, and even wine spritzers. But porto — a form of wine that originated on the Iberian peninsula — isn’t all that familiar as a cocktail mixer. The sweetish wine mixes well with other liquors, though, as this recipe bears out.
1.5 oz. of Sandeman Porto Founders Reserve
1 oz. gin
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Making it: Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Shake to chill and dilute. Strain into a chilled rock-filled double old-fashioned glass. Garnish with an edible flower.
