Black Cup

Black Cup cocktail with strawberry, simple syrup, Port wine, lemon juice, and lemon-lime soda or sparkling water

We love port wine in all its forms, but there’s a serious lack of good cocktail recipes that include it – much less for drinks you could sip on a hot summer’s day. Master mixologist Jim Meehan does his part to rectify this omission with the Black Cup, a juicy, refreshing long drink. It’s named after Noval Black, a young port that Meehan uses in his recipe – but it’s equally delicious with an older port, or a tawny port.

You can use lemon-lime soda or sparkling water to top, depending on your preference. In fact, you could even use a citrus, cucumber, or berry-flavored sparkling water for a nice twist, instead.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the strawberry with the simple syrup in a shaker. Add the port and lemon juice, add ice, and then shake vigorously. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass, and top with the sparkling water or 7-up.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
