WOW – does it feel great to put away those winter boots and snow shovels for another season!

Why not celebrate the arrival of spring and warmer weather that’s perfect for entertaining by mixing up this “Transatlantic Fizz” cocktail, the brainchild of Cocktail Guru, Jonathan Pogash. It features one of our all-time favorite libations, Sandeman Porto.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle  a fresh strawberry  with fresh lime juice and almond syrup. Then add 2 ounces of the reserve port with an ounce of Avion Blanco tequila, adding crushed ice before shaking well. Strain over ice into a highball glass, adding the finishing touch of a layer of champagne. Add a stirstick and garnish with a fresh whole strawberry. Pogash reports this cocktail goes great with toasted Portuguese almonds.

The Transatlantic Fizz Cocktail Featuring Sandeman Porto – Gotta Love It!

Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto ( is perfect for sipping slowly on a snowy winter’s night. This is a rich libation that can be savored solo.  But now that spring has arrived and summer’s entertainment season is just around the corner, we keep  our bottle of Sandeman very handy on our bar because we’ve discovered it makes great mixed cocktails that are refreshing for warmer weather.

In addition to blending it with Scotch Whiskey, Blood Orange Juice and honey cucumber water to create a delightful carbonated Founders Fizz, Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto also is a key ingredient for Sangria, Margaritas, Cosmos and a bracing Sandeman Rush featuring well-chilled Sandeman shaken with Scotch and Kahlua, garnishedc with a cinnamon stick.
