Saint Valentine cocktail

An elegant cocktail, David Wondrich’s Saint Valentine is a simple mix of rum and ruby port that is sure to delight. This recipe is obviously appropriate for Valentine’s Day. 

On his Esquire blog, Wondrich shares a recipe for Saint Valentine in a large batch and suggests using a ‘full-flavored white rum such as 10 Cane or Flor de Caña.’ Another excellent option for rum is Banks 5 Island. It has a bright, fruity taste.
