December Drinking Tip #3: EASIEST DESSERT IN THE WORLD
“Billy, I loved the Port you poured tonight, and do you want to hear how I overcame the anxiety of preparing dessert”. Certainly, I said. “Just serve chocolate and Port.”
I’m passing on these words of wisdom from someone who came to a tasting to all over-stressed Holiday hosts. And to anytime hosts. You’ll never get a complaint when you put out a good piece of chocolate alongside a glass of Port. For “˜a nice presentation’ place the glass and chocolate on the same plate, lined with a doily.
Tawny Port has a mellow/warming quality that’s very appealing at the end of dinner. A second glass after the chocolate is the ideal “˜good-night’ kiss to your guests. Real friends will of course linger longer. Enjoying your stress-free company.
