My mix on a classic Portuguese digestif

I recently discovered Rosé Port on my travels to Portugal. It  is a relatively new variety of port that’s only been around for couple of years, it could be described as lighter than a ruby port while still retaining its red fruit flavours. Rosé port offers a similar lightness but with a stronger essence of fruit flavours like strawberries and raspberries, with its sweet nature they pair very well with the bitterness of tonics.

I alway use a high quality premium tonic in all my drinks, and recently I have been loving Poachers Irish Tonics, based in Co. Wexford, their range of mixers use only natural Irish ingredients, created with imagination and care, they are lower in sugar and enhanced with natural herbal finishes.
