Sweet Ruby

Servings: one.

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

    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 garnish...like little ice cubes...cheers
