The Perfect Finish cocktail.

Following Jim Meehan's first port cocktail, the Deep Purple Cocktail, we give you another fall cocktail that's perfectly paired with our favorite indulgence — chocolate. The Crème de Cacao reinforces the chocolate notes in the port and rich malt used to produce this port cask finished single malt Scotch whisky.

Ingredients

  • 2  Ounces  Noval Black Port
  • 1  Ounce  Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban Scotch Whisky
  • 1/4  Ounce  Brizard White Crème de Cacao

Directions

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a piece of dark chocolate.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
