Day #53 of the year.

Port of Margarita

National Margarita day is on a Monday in 2021 and that seems fitting. Get creative with your cocktails and try a Port of Margarita from Elle Talk. I’m obsessed with this cocktail because it makes a Monday feel like a Saturday night, this cocktail is absolutely charming. The cocktail starts as a regular margarita but is topped with a ruby port floater. My port of choice is Fonseca classic vintage port, picking a quality ruby port to top this drink off will offer the purest fruit expression. Happy Monday everyone and yes, I’ll take a double.

Featured Wine

Fonseca Classic Vintage Port

Wine Tasting Notes

A dense, opaque wine with classic Fonseca aromas and flavors: dense blackberry and blackcurrant, spice, coffee, cocoa, and prune. Thick, velvety tannins give the wine a voluptuous density on the palate. This wine will develop for decades in the bottle.
