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.
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.
- 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
