  • About

Port is typically a sweet dessert wine or digestif that comes from the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. It’s often enjoyed after dinner on its own, but it can also be mixed into cocktails. This recipe is inspired by the cherry liqueur Ginjinha, served in mini chocolate cups, that we tasted at the festive outdoor Christmas market in Praça do Rossio in Lisbon.


  • In a cocktail shaker, shake the following with ice:
  • 2 oz (60 ml) ruby port
  • 1 oz (30 ml) whiskey
  • dash bitters


Pour into a glass & garnish with 3 Luxardo maraschino cherries
