The Story Behind The Perfect Port Daiquiri
Port wine is excellent in cocktails. To match the flavor profile of light, floral white port, I made a simple syrup using Demerara sugar to use in a variation on a classic Daiquiri. The sugar adds great texture and a bolder flavor to the drink. I then mixed it up even further, adding some rosé port to elevate the citrus notes and add a touch of berry sweetness.
