Port wine anytime

10 November, 2011

Port wine is normally drunk on its own, like a wine. In some countries, people drink it as an aperitif, while in others, it acts as more of a digestive.

In Portugal, it is served throughout the meal. Portonic is a traditional pre-dinner drink. Dry white port, tonic water (such as Canada Dry) a couple of ice cubes, a slice of lemon and voilà, the perfect cocktail for summer evenings!


Some port wine companies have even come up with cocktail recipes.
