Port Sour Cocktial
What do a little bit of Port and some orange have to do with a sour cocktail? Let us find out!
We are doing something slightly different. We are still making a cocktail, but what we are creating is a Port Sour Cocktail. And how did this come about? You might ask because Port is something you usually would not do much with, except drink it straight in a fancy little glass after dinner.
So, I sat down the other day and said to myself, you know, self, what do I like to drink? And I said, Port, and then I said again, well, what else do I like to drink? And I said, Port. Okay. However, I wanted to do something different. So, I thought about my love of sour cocktails. Now what?
Could I make this into a port sour? I did not see any recipes for it. So, I figured why not try it? It is going to be different. And I know that if I take my spirit and a little bit of citrus and a little bit of a sweetener, for example, a simple syrup, you can do it if you get it in the proper proportions.
So today, we are going to make a port sour for the first time.
