White Port and Tonic

July 5, 2024
Taylor Fladgate Chip Dry & Tonic

Sometimes the most spectacular cocktails are actually the most simple. A classic aperitif throughout Portugal, this drink features the country’s lesser-known white port. While white port, a fortified wine made from white grapes in Portugal’s Douro Valley, can range from dry to sweet, this cocktail leans on the crisp, fruity, and light-bodied dry style as a counterpoint to bittersweet tonic water. Lime and fresh mint add clean, bright aromas and an eye-catching look.

White Port can be easily found online and is carried at many liquor stores. We like Taylor’s Chip Dry White Port since it is very affordable (a 750-milliliter bottle is often less than $20) and has a lovely balance of flavors and aromas like lemon peel, tangerine, and yellow apple.
