Whether you’re hosting a holiday party or looking for the perfect gift, get into the spirit this season with Sandeman Porto. What’s on your Christmas list?

Cocktails

1. Sandeman on the Rocks is a simple cocktail that makes a perfect pre-dinner treat.

2. The Sandeman Royal will make bar-duty at your holiday bash quick and painless. Combine two ounces of the Sandeman 20 Year Old Porto with a splash of Chivas Regal 12 Year Old, add ice and shake vigorously. Strain and serve in a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

3. The Ciderhouse Punch, created by renowned mixologisSandeman Cocktailst Jonathan Pogash, showcases how mixable Sandeman Porto Founders Reserve is. Combine a bottle of Founders Reserve, 20 ounces of apple cider, 10 ounces of fresh lemon juice and 10 ounces of ginger syrup into a punch bowl with ice and stir well. Serve with sliced apples and lemons inside the bowl.

4. The Sandeman Sparkler will make your bubbles even more festive.


Pairings

6. Pair Sandeman 40 Year Old Tawny Porto with intense cheeses. The Prenees Brebis and Boerenkaas Gouda from Murray’s Cheese will ensure that you’ll make an impression.
