The Spanish-named Diablo cocktail is known as Devil’s Cocktail if white port is used, as it is in this recipe. White port is usually served chilled. If you use red port, the drink takes its Spanish name, Diablo. Try it both ways.
1 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1 1/2 ounce white port
1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
Pour all ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Tasting notes: The two wine based ingredients provide tangy, fruity notes. Refreshing.
Tomorrow: French cafe sipper
