Black Shadow Sangaree

Not to be confused with sangria, the sangaree is essentially a single-serving punch which features rich flavors and colors perfect for a chilly evening. Spiker’s Black Currant shrub contributes deliciously deep, berry-rich flavor to the spirits, and also adds to the depth of color. Sip slowly (this is high proof), and enjoy.

Black Shadow Sangaree


  • 2 ounces Tawny Port wine chilled or room temperature
  • 1/2 ounce Spiker's Black Currant shrub
  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 1 ounce brandy
  • 1 thin lemon wedge optional


  • In a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice, add the dark rum or brandy and the Spiker's Black Currant Shrub. Shake vigorously for approximately 20 seconds.
  • Strain the mixture into a Gibson-style glass or martini glass.
  • Slowly pour the tawny port into the glass, and gently stir with a bar spoon. If desired, add a tiny squeeze of fresh lemon juice and garnish the glass with a lemon peel twist.
