Diversifying Port Consumption: Canned Portonic Brings a New Twist to RTD Tipples

Port, the famed fortified wine from Portugal’s Douro region, is most commonly enjoyed as a dessert wine. But it’s also great in cocktails—one of the most popular examples being the Portonic, or Port and Tonic. The classic version combines one part White Port, dry or sweet, with two parts tonic water, served over ice with a slice of lemon; Rosé, Ruby, or Tawny Port can also be used, however, to make a refreshing drink that’s perfect for enjoying at the start of a meal.

And now the Portonic has joined the wide world of RTDs, whose popularity has never been more apparent.
