Devil's Cocktail

If this is the Devil's Cocktail, there's not much to fear from the Devil. It is a low proof drink made of port and dry vermouth. I think that it gets its name from the evil look of that much blood red port in a cocktail glass, like you'd expect to see bubbles of lost souls rising to the surface. Get this look from stirring rather than shaking, which would cloud the drink and overchill it. The Devil doesn't like things to be too cold.
  • 2 oz. ruby port
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sip while thinking sinfully.
