This obscure poivrade-based sauce is flavored with juniper berries and Malaga, a fortified wine that is difficult to obtain in the United States. Other fortified wines, such as Madeira or port, can also be used. Juniper berries are excellent for reinforcing—even mimicking—the flavor of game. In classic recipes, the sauce is finished with white raisins and toasted almonds or pine nuts.
