Amazing Port Cocktails

by James Stevenson

I may have a slight obsession with port, which does go back before my visit to the wonderful region, but was certainly reaffirmed during my time there. It’s amazing to sip after a great meal, or any time really, but obviously it also makes a great modifier in cocktails. Here are some cocktails I mixed up for my very special IG Live happy hour today.
