Sandeman Royale is best cherished with an orange twist and good company.
Pour out 150 ml of the port and reserve the rest for another use. Add the Scotch to the remaining port in the bottle, seal and shake lightly to combine. Store in the freezer. To serve, pour about 75 ml of the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.
