Ruby port and amaretto liqueur make this a great post-meal warmer: It’s sweet, complex, and rich, but very easy to make.

  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) ruby port, such as Warre’s Warrior Special Reserve
  • 3/4 fl. oz. (1-1/2Tbs.) Amaretto di Saronno
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine the port, amaretto, and bitters in a chilled mixing glass or cocktail shaker. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Stir with a long spoon until well combined, about 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled rocks glass over fresh ice and serve.

Easy and delicious. The bitters are key and make it taste like a mulled wine dessert drink. My guests love it. Try using a martini shaker and strain into a martini glass with frozen cranberries floating as a little ice cubes...cheers
