Today we’ll be showing you how to make the port light cocktail, a recipe designed in the 60s that fits the tiki theme. We’ll give you some history along the way too!

Liber & Co Tropical Passion Fruit Syrup: http://bit.ly/2oeYQDU
Passion Fruit juice is awesome and it blends well (literally) into the rest of the cocktail, making a whiskey sour with passion fruit like flavor. The Port Light was born in Columbus Ohio, not a tropical island.
The origin of this cocktail comes from the Kahiki Tiki Bar in the 1960s. We can’t revisit the restaurant because it’s now a Walgreens store, which is sad. But, we can at least build this cocktail and taste the experience!
Port Light Cocktail
1 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 oz. Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz. Grenadine
