I didn't have any port, so I subbed Bonal Gentiane-Quina for now. This made a nice drink, lots of dried fruit flavors, some sweetness but not too much. I'll try it again with port as soon as I have some. The Cora strikes me as somewhere between Becherovka (without the dominant allspice flavor) and Averna...

So thanks to the kindness of a stranger ;) I now have a bottle of Cora. This is definitely in the fall-and-winter set of cocktails. The ruby Port does get a bit lost up front, but contributes dried fruit tones to the midpalate. This shines on the finish, with lots of cream-coconut flavors and allspice that lingers. Maybe half Port and half Clear Creek cranberry liqueur next time?
