RECIPE: Valentine’s Day Punch

If you’re having a Valentine’s Day party and are looking for a special cocktail, the ruby red color and luscious flavor of this Valentine punch, made with ruby port, fit the bill.

The recipe was developed for Sandeman Port—whose Ruby Port is a favorite of ours—by mixologist Adam Schuman of Fatty Crew restaurant in New York City.

You don’t need a punch bowl: You can mix the ingredients and serve them from a pitcher (which is a space saver, as well).


Serves 10-15.


  • 25 parts Sandman Ruby Port
  • 20 pieces allspice
  • 10 pieces star anise
  • 5 cinnamon sticks
  • 17 parts Jamaican white rum
  • 25 parts pineapple juice
  • 4 parts fresh lime juice
  • 2 dashes Pernod liqueur
  • 25 parts ginger ale
  • Ice
  • Garnish: nutmeg, optional lemon peel
  • Preparation

    1. Simmer 6 parts of port with allspice, cinnamon and star anise. Cool (you can put it in the fridge to chill).

    2. Add remaining ingredients except ginger ale and ice to the punch bowl.

    3. Before serving, add ice and ginger ale to the punch. Grate or sprinkle nutmeg over the punch.
