Served in a highball glass, this cocktail offers a layered taste experience, where the deep notes of the whiskey are complemented by the lighter, sweeter undertones of the WKD Red and the complex flavors of the port. The resulting drink is a bold fusion of flavors that might appeal to those who enjoy a stronger, fruit-tinged alcoholic beverage.
