cocktail friend: port love potions

I love love love port cocktails. I had a ton of great ones at the Yeatman last September, and they seem especially inspired for a Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re celebrating with an actual Valentine or you’re just in love with yourself, one of these will add to your day.

1 1/2 oz. good, flavorful white rum

1/2 oz. Fonseca Bin 27 Ruby Port

1/2 oz. orange curacao or Grand Marnier

1/2 oz. oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice

Shake all ingredients well with ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.


But to me, Croft Pink is perfect for V-Day. Bubbles aren’t a horrible way to celebrate either. And just in case you’re bitter about the holiday, this one’s got you covered that way too. Put that all together and you have:

You can find these and tons more here. Prepare to fall in love, grapefriends.
