Quinta Do Portal Colheita Red 2016, 75 cl
Regular price £18.99 £14.24
Superb example of modern Portuguese wine making at its very best. Handled and created with great care and gentle winemaking, using gravity and precise techniques, this wine is full bodied with a ripe berry colour and fruity aromas marked by Tinta Roriz that is responsible for the intense aroma of young fresh fruit and by floral notes from the Touriga Nacional. Excellent freshness, toasty and appetising in the mouth, with an attractive and elegant finish. It's a wine that we can enjoy now but it will also age a few years very well. Read more.

1870 Sour Cocktail Recipe
The Sour Cocktail is versatile – whether you decide to switch up the Whisky, sour or sweet element, the end result will almost always be delicious – just remember to stick to that golden ratio of 2 parts Whisky, 1 part sour and 1 part sweet (but hey, if your personal preference is different, you do you!). The 1870 Sour, also known as the New York Sour ,updates the Whiskey Sour recipe (whiskey, lemon, sugar, egg white) with a float of dry red wine. (Psst, a float is when you suspend the final ingredient on top of the drink!). Everyone loves a good layered cocktail. They are fun to make and look amazing in photos - perfect for Instagram. The New York sour has been around longer than any living human. It’s thought that this cocktail was created around the 1870s/1890's - certainly a modern classic! If you’re after something sweeter, bourbon or brandy are both great options. Prefer a smokier sour? A scotch will be your go-to. When it comes to the sour substitution, lime is a more subtle option if you find lemon too overpowering, alternatively you can opt for a sweeter pick like orange or a more savoury choice like grapefruit. And when it comes to the egg white and no egg white debate, well, it’s completely up to you!
