Devil’s Cocktail

Devil’s Cocktail

1/2 Port Wine. (1 1/4 oz Ficklin Old Vine Tinta Port)
1/2 French Vermouth. (1 1/4 oz Noilly Prat)
2 Dashes Lemon Juice.

Shake (stir, please) well and strain into cocktail glass.

Well, this is an appropriately named cocktail for Halloween.

Though, it really doesn’t seem particularly satanic to me.

It is refreshing, light, and somewhat wine-like.

Aside from the color, perhaps it is a “Devil’s Cocktail” because it doesn’t really seem like it has any alcohol?

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
