Prep for Port Day – Part III

Prep for Port Day charges forward at Cocktail Culture (too much alliteration? nahhhhh!) with a variation to a cocktail recipe that consumer just cannot get enough of – the Cosmopolitan.

But before I get to the recipe, let me just say a few things about celebrating Port Day today. There is a great EventBrite website where you can find a slew of Port Day tastings, cocktails, and educational seminars happening nationwide. And, even as I begin writing this at 9 am, there is a wild flurry of #PortDay conversations happening on Twitter and blogs. But if you are interested more in finding use for a bottle of Sandeman Founders Reserve at home, I’ll get back to the Cosmo recipe at hand.

Adding Sandeman Founders Reserve to this cocktail may deprive the drink of its primarily pink hue, but what it may lack in color is made up for with flavor. Here’s the recipe so you can try this winner of a cocktail recipe for yourself:

Sandeman Cosmo

  • 1 oz. Founders Reserve Porto
  • 2 oz. Absolut Vodka
  • .5 oz. Hiram Walker Triple Sec
  • Splash of lime juice
  • Splash of cranberry juice

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain and serve up in a chilled martini glass.

Also, please feel free to go back to find more Port recipes in Parts I and II of this series.

Cheers and Happy #PortDay to you!
