There's not enough grenadine in the recipe (thankfully) to really make this drink actually crimson. And port tends not to be a bright red. What you have here is an old-school tasting gin cocktail that I wasn't especially fond of. It was still a nice summer drink with plenty of fruit flavor and port sweetness. You see my hand adding the port as a float, however, port tends to sink into juice, so you are left with a big gob at the bottom of the glass.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. ruby port
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
Combine all ingredients except port in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Float port on top.
