Coconut Tawny Port Steamer

  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 25
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 7-8 1x




Serves 7-8
glass: mug or teacup
tools: medium saucepan, whisk, ladle, microplane or grater

  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 12 oz Croft Tawny Port
  • 4 oz brandy
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 nutmeg, chopped into two
  • 1 vanilla bean, split


Add coconut milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg & vanilla bean into a medium saucepan on medium low. Whisk to break up any coconut cream. Bring to just below a simmer*. Heat for 15 mins to infuse the spices, whisking periodically. Add Croft Tawny Port & brandy to the pan. Simmer for 5-10 mins to warm. Remove vanilla bean pod and nutmeg before serving. Use a ladle to sever into mugs or teacups. Grate nutmeg on top and garnish with whole star anise.


Do not let the mixture boil. It will cook off the alcohol as well as burn the coconut milk.
