Leave it to Jim Meehan of PDT to create the perfect fall cocktail. Using Noval Black Port, Meehan created a true port cocktail, using fall's best concord grapes, Lillet rouge, shiso, and cognac. While port can always be enjoyed as an aperitif or a a late-night drink, it adds a new level of dimension to your usual spirited cocktail.
Muddle the concord grapes and shiso. Add the rest of the ingredients and ice. Shake and fine strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with pebble ice. Garnish with a shiso leaf.
