The Deep Purple Cocktail


The Deep Purple cocktail.

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. 


  • 1 3/4 Ounce Tesseron Lot 76 XO Cognac
  • 1 Ounce Noval Black Port
  • 3/4 Ounces Lillet Rouge
  • 6 concord grapes
  • 1 shiso leaf


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.
