Mix it up in style this New Year’s Eve with the Ivy League of cocktail recipes – a port-rich Princeton

As a port devotee, I’ve never understood why this juicy winter warmer doesn’t get used more in cocktails, which is why I’ll be mixing up some festive red Princetons for New Year’s Eve. Dating back to the late 19th century, when a slick New York barman called George Kappeler created a slew of new drinks named after Ivy League universities, this rich concoction of port, gin and bitters gives you a beautiful two-tone effect. So if you’re wondering what to do with leftover Christmas port (not a problem I ever have, I must say… ) try these, and start the new year in style.
