Recipe: Deep Purple from PDT

Last week, Jim Meehan debuted six new port cocktails on the menu at his East Village speakeasy, PDT. This autumnal beauty -- made with Concord grapes and shiso -- is named for the rock band. And yeah, you might find yourself humming "Smoke on the Water" when you take a sip.

Here's the recipe:
