White Port Tonics: the perfect summer aperitif

White Port Tonics: the perfect summer aperitif

This is the perfect aperitif - refreshing, easy to make and lower alcohol than spirits-based drinks. It’s a great alternative to an Aperol Spritz, and a bottle of white port is amazing value for money.

White Port

Vinified using white grapes with the addition of a neutral spirit to preserve a hint of sweetness resulting in an off-dry style. Distinctive on the nose and palate - nutty and floral.

It is best drunk young (and with tonic, of course!). At approximately 20% ABV, this is light enough to sip at anytime of the day.

Recipe

  • Glass – either a highball glass or goblet
  • Fill ¾ with ice
  • One part white port
  • Two parts good quality tonic
  • Garnish with a lemon or orange wedge
  • Optional: Mint, basil, rosemary or edible flower
