3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
3⁄4 oz Ruby Port, Sandeman
1⁄2 oz Allspice Dram
1 Ginger (Nickel-sized slice, as garnish)
1 Blackberry (As garnish)

Shake with ice; strain into chilled coupé. Garnish.


Assemble garnishes on a cocktail pick. I used house-made dram, but the commercial stuff, e.g., St. Elizabeth's, is just fine.

  • I had some leftover ginger from making anise-scented short ribs & built this recipe around it. Originally an aromatic cocktail, it needed some acid to balance the sweetness — hence the lemon juice. — ★★★
