On a hot summer day it is tough to beat this old school cocktail. This thirst-quencher makes any heat wave bearable. A white port and tonic has some interest and depth, but is super fresh and easy.
With only two ingredients and a garnish, it is the perfect antidote to muddling and mixing overload— in the heat of summer, who wants to spend any more time mucking around than you have to?
White port is lighter and more refreshing than its ruby counterpart. The combination with tonic is a classic cocktail and totally worth a round (or two!). Here, I used Warre’s White Port, check your local wine store or grocery store, you can find decent bottles in the $15 range.
White Port and Tonic
It’s worth seeking out organic tonic because it doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup, most bottle shops carry a good range of options these days.
Makes 1 serving

Serve in a tall glass over ice and garnish with seasonal fruit (citrus slices or peaches).
This perfect summer cocktail is seasonal, fresh and believe it or not—actually tastes like watermelon.
No, it's not you the labels getting a little loose. It must be the gin.
While bar hopping in London we became attached to this simple cocktail served in a fresh way.

This Champagne is the latest hit at our house.
Inspired by some recent finds and the upcoming return of Mad Men, I’m planning to outfit my own Don Draper this Valentine’s Day with some great old school bar items.
Mix a harvest of bright, succulent limes with our Indian summer heat wave and you have the perfect excuse for a good old gin cocktail. Mine is aptly named Sisters’ Gin Gimlet.
Citrus in Santa Barbara is unbelievably delicious. I am crazy about and covet blood oranges and anxiously await winter months so I can devour them.
