How to make a "Princeton Cocktail"

After yesterday's football score (37 to 3) you may have felt driven to drink, but, it turns out there is even a way to drink and express your Tiger spirit at the same time. Yes, Princeton has a cocktail.

The drink, which was developed in the late 1800s, was featured in the Cocktail column of The San Francisco Chronicle, showing that even Old Nassau can be new again. The recipe calls for 2 ounces gin, 3/4 ounce of Port, 3 dashes orange bitters and a lemon peel for garnish.

To serve the Princeton Cocktail, mix the gin, bitters and ice and stir for 15 seconds. Strain the mixture and pour it into a cocktail glass. Then, tilting the glass, pour the Port down the side so that it ends up below the gin and bitters. Enjoy, but maybe not this week. Good luck with midterms.
