If you think port doesn’t get its proper due here in the States, it’s doubly true of white port. “Some people are like, ‘I heard of that once in a song my grandma listened to,’” jokes Morgan Schick, the creative director behind Trick Dog. In an attempt to assuage such ageism, Schick used the classic Bamboo as a launch point for the Kobra. “I just think the structure works really well,” he says of the template, which combines white port with manzanilla sherry, enhanced with spice from the falernum and bitterness from the quinquina wine.
