White Port and Tonic cocktails are the number one summer drink in Portugal. This summer we have been working with our Portuguese producers to offer the biggest range in the UK.We are offering up to 20% off our range of white ports spanning affordable entry level wines to ultra-rare vintage white ports.
White Port cocktails are THE aperitif drink of the Portuguese. If you have sat in the banks of the Douro river on a hot summer's day and have not enjoyed a white port with tonic you haven't really experienced the refreshing side of port wine! White Port can be enjoyed chilled on its own, as an aperitif, or with a twist of lemon accompanied by roasted almonds, olives or dry biscuits. But our favourite options are cocktails, when white port is the main component blended with different ingredients to form fascinating and refreshing flavour combinations.
For the Mint Syrup:
1. Add ice to mixing glass. Pour in the White Port, grapefruit juice, mint syrup, lime juice, and club soda. Stir until mixture is chilled.
2. Strain into serving glass with fresh ice. Garnish with sliced lime and fresh mint leaves.
To make mint syrup: Combine water, sugar, and mint leaves in a sauce pot. Set over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow mint to steep for 30 minutes. Strain out mint. Store mint syrup in the fridge until ready to use. Mint syrup will keep the in fridge for 2 weeks.
