Xmas Gifts Parade 2020 : Fonseca Porto

Fortified wine aperitifs like vermouth and sherry always add tons of flavour and texture to your cocktail. The spirit I have used least for this until now is probably Port wine. Let’s see if we can do something nice with this great bottle of Fonseca Porto Bin N°27. This is a rich, vibrant, intense, fruity and full bodied port. 

Since this is a port wine with a very intense fruity nose and a smooth texture with lots of tannins, we can absolutely use it for tasty combinations. You can pair it with chocolate, fruit, cheese or desserts. We are looking for a bolder combination in this Manhattan variation.  

Bar Drake Manhattan

60 ml Woodford Reserve Bourbon
30 ml Fonseca Bin 27 Port
1 bs Maple Syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with lots of ice. Stir for 15 seconds and strain in a pre-chilled coupe. Garnish with cocktail cherries.
