Sommeliers Lilly & Greg DeForest Campbell enjoy experimenting with under-the-radar, wine-based cocktails, and they found an ideal vehicle for Port in this obscure libation. “The Fox Hunter Martini is a drink I was introduced to by Greg’s parents a few years ago,” says Lilly. “Its base is [usually] Bourbon and Madeira. Our variation features Bourbon, Port, sweet vermouth and a few dashes of Angostura bitters.” They recommend Dolin Rouge vermouth and Quinta do Crasto 2011 LBV Port here.


2 ounces Bourbon
¾ ounces vermouth
¾ ounce late bottled vintage Port
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Lemon twist, for garnish
Luxardo cherry, for garnish


In mixing glass, add ingredients and stir. Strain into coupe glass. Garnish with lemon twist and Luxardo cherry.
