Saint Valentine Cocktail

St Valentine Cocktail
I don’t normally use port when making drinks, but when the PeguWife needs some for cooking, I enjoy the rest of the bottle in something or other so it doesn’t go bad. This time around, I’ve been working my way through a number of the recipes at Portcocktails.com. The clear winner so far, for both my wife and me, is the Saint Valentine, an original by David Wondrich. It is a delicious “improved” Daiquiri, and if you have some ruby (or even tawny) port lying around in need of being used, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

ST. VALENTINE

  • 3 parts good white rum
  • 1 part ruby port
  • 1 part orange curaçao
  • 1 part fresh lime juice

Shake well and strain into a stemmed glass. Garnish with a lime wheel or orange peel.

One final note: I came to this as a port drink, but the star of the show is the rum. It’s going to make or break the cocktail. I’ve been using Plantation Three Stars, and it works fabulously.
