Friday's Happy Hour: Portonic

port wineEvery summer, I put aside my go-to vodka tonic and dub a "summer drink" for myself. It's the drink that I always order anytime I do outdoor drinking. This year, I'm going with a white port and tonic, aka a Portonic.


It's perfect for outdoor drinking because it's light, crisp, and refreshing with just enough fizzies to tickle the tongue. It's also pretty low in alcohol content, so you can sip all day long without having to worry about getting smashed.

In fact, I think that's exactly how I'm going to spend this beautiful Friday afternoon.

To make, pour the white port over ice and then add a splash of tonic, topped off with a lemon slice.


Have you ever tried a Portonic?
