The Port Elderflower Cocktail is a slightly sweet mix that I put together one evening when I was in the mood for port wine. I was wondering how it would taste with one of my favorite liquors, St. Germain elderflower.
I had high hopes the port and elderflower liqueur combo would be good, but it turned out to be delicious. I added light rum as a base in the hopes that both would lighten it up and give it a little more kick.
To my surprise, the rum enhanced and sharpened the flavors of the other two liquors, highlighting the fruity and floral notes of the other two liquors. It’s smooth as it can be and only moderately sweet. Everything about it is easy to love.
Port cocktails aren’t that common. When we think of port, we usually think of a sipping spirit rather than the base of a cocktail. This cocktail bears a certain resemblance to a Rum Sangaree, which mixes port with dark rum and Cointreau.
It is also similar to the Crimson Cocktail, which uses gin instead of rum and adds some lemon juice.
This combination makes a wonderful nightcap or an after-dinner drink. If you’re going to have it with a meal, it goes well with seasoned meats, especially those that already have a strong flavor, like prosciutto or salmon.
Look for recipes with spices like garlic or black pepper, like this peppercorn garlic pork tenderloin with ricotta herb polenta from Mommyhood’s Diary.
It may sound like a heavy cocktail, but the rum makes it light enough to enjoy while grilling over ice.
