Grand Porto

Holiday Cocktail Recipe

Grand Porto

 
  • 1 oz. tawny port
  • 3/4 oz. orange curaçao
  • 3/4 oz. pear purée
  • 1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Garnish: green pear slice wrapped in an orange twist

Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, add ice cubes, and shake thoroughly. Strain into a chilled Champagne coupe. Garnish with the pear slice.

 

Trade Secret

Before you decide what drinks to serve at your party, think about local fruits or vegetables that are in season at your nearby grocery or farmers' market, and try to incorporate them into the party. In the dead of winter, there's still a variety of apples and pears available, and especially great citrus in the form of c1ementines and blood oranges. And dried fruits such as figs, raisins, dates, and tamarind work particularly well in winter spirit infusions.
