Mixing Tips

Glassware

  • A chilled glass keeps your drink longer and more enjoyable. Your used ice will melt slower, and the taste will stay longer.

Alcoholic Ingredients

  • It's good to check if the used Port Wine is in good condition. If it is a White Port, make sure to keep it refrigerated. It will stay longer fresh.

Non Alcoholic Ingredients

  • Make sure your carbonated filler is cold and fresh.

Mise en Place

Ice:

ice cubes for the serving glass

Bar Equipment:

Jigger
Bottle Opener
Large Spoon

Garnish:

1x lime wedge

Editor Recipe Notes

Almost everybody likes to Drink Gin & Tonic. But for some years, there has been a movement to lower alcoholic beverages. It’s good that customers and consumers decide to drink lesser alcohol and still go to restaurants and bars.

The Porto Splash is a Low-Abv version. It has floral notes and only halves of the alcohol content as a regular Gin&Tonic if you pour 40ml. But because there is a lower alcohol volume inside the White Port, we decided to use 60ml.

However, it is a beautiful summer version, light, crisp and refreshing.
