Portuguese Port Tonic Cocktail  Recipe

Easy Port Tonic with an Orange Twist

Joana, Farah Trading Co's content writer here writing to you from my home in Leiria, Portugal with a cocktail recipe ready for your weekend plans!

Port Tonic is one of my all-time favorite Portuguese cocktails. It’s something I order when I’m out and something I do when I’m home. I love it so much that it was the signature drink at my wedding here in Leira, Portugal.

Easy Port Tonic with an Orange Twist

Port cocktails have layers of oak barrel flavor and structure we love from Port, the fun bubbles from the tonic and the nice final touches from whatever we decide add to it (fruit, herbs etc).

You can make Port cocktails from just about any type of Port - tawnies, rubies, white Port and rosé Port. Tawnies (especially the older editions) are complex and complete enough to serve straight up, slightly chilled, as an aperitif or dessert.

You can also get creative and have fun mixing up a Tawny Sour or other Port cocktails (check out our full Port cocktail recipe guide here!)

This Port Tonic is super quick and easy to make and it looks spectacular in the glass!

I’ve tried many different versions over the years with lime or strawberries for summer versions and pomegranates and cinnamon for a winery take. Whatever you decide to add, this cocktail is so versatile that it works out great every time!

Since this week is my wedding anniversary, I will simply share the version we served that day with you and you can make it at home too!
