Princeton Cocktail

Stir the gin and bitters with ice.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Slide the port down the side of the glass.  It will naturally settle at the bottom.  Orange or lemon peel, twist and discard.

I like tawny port in this drink, perhaps a 10 year.  I find a nice 1-2 punch between the botanical / vegetal beginning and the smooth, sweet vanilla ending (should you resist stirring the drink).  

I found this recipe in Imbibe!: From Absinthe Cocktail to Whiskey Smash.  I also see it in The South American Gentleman's Companion going by the name Rio Red Gin.
