Cocktail of the Day: Sandeman Harvest Sour

 Sandeman port cocktail
In an effort to help make one of my 2013 predictions come true, I offer a tasty cocktail made with Port wine.

I know this one's a little complicated, but if you feel ambitious, it's worth the effort.

Sandeman Harvest Sour

1 1/2 oz Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto
1/2 oz Apple Brandy 
3/4 oz Raspberry Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
2-3 oz Dry Apple Cider

Shake all ingredients (except cider) with ice, then strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with cider, garnish with raspberries and dust with nutmeg.

1 1/2 oz Raspberry Vodka
1/2 oz Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur
1/2 oz Licor 43
3 Large Srawberries
1 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Demerara Sugar Syrup

In a mixing glass, muddle the strawberries with the lemon juice and sugar syrup. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. (If you don't want little pieces of strawberry floating in it, you can double strain it.)
