Prep For Port Day – Part I

Sandeman Founders Reserve, a Ruby Porto at 20% ABV, can be a perfect companion to celebrate Port Day on January 27th.

Port primarily does not come to mind when one initially thinks of ingredients for a cocktail. But with Port Day slated for this Friday, January 27, I thought it ideal to showcase a few ways over the next couple of days in which port can really add a depth in flavors to your cocktail recipes.

After a week of mixed rain and snow, a hot drink seemed ideal to ease us into the port cocktail conversation, showcasing Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto. Here’s what you’ll need:

Sandeman Mulled Port Wine

  • 1 bottle of Sandeman Founders Reserve Port
  • 6 oz. Martell VS Cognac
  • ½ cup of Sugar
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 orange cut in small slices
  • 4 oz. fresh squeezed orange juice

Directions: Combine all ingredients into a medium size sauce pan and bring to heat but not boil. Serve hot in traditional mulled wine glasses.

You can also find photos and many more recipes on the Sandeman brand Facebook page. Stay close by – there’s plenty more to come this week!
