Sip of the Day

Day #124 of the year.
Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto
There is nothing like a dark chocolate covered candied orange peel to finish off a long day. Back in the day, I used to have to wait until we would get a box of these at some artisanal fudge shop on vacation. But now, these fan favorites are mainstream and you can find them in almost every local chocolate or sweet store. On a regular night I would pop 1 (or 2) of these after dinner, but if a have a bottle of Tawny, such as Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Porto, I like to indulge in a mini dessert pairing. While port or dark chocolate might not be for everyone, they are two of my favorite treats. Having a glass of port or a piece of dark chocolate is part of my evening routine, signaling that meal is finished and I’m done eating for the day. Try this combination a few times and I’m sure you’ll be hooked to make it part of your daily ritual too.
