#CocoDrinks: Port and Tonic with Graham’s

Summer is the absolute perfect time to experiment with new drinks and delicious cocktails, so when #TeamCoco heard about the launch of leading port company Graham’s Blend No5 White Port, we instantly wanted to find out more, I mean, who even knew that port could be white!

This exciting launch means that for those of us who aren’t really into the current gin craze we can adopt our very own sophisticated drink, and let it be Blend No5 White Port by Graham’s with a little cheeky tonic. It’s got a certain ring to it don’t you think ‘I’ll have a Graham’s Blend No5 and tonic please’?

The first thing we find out about this new product by Graham’s is that this white port has fresh citrus tones with a touch of orange blossom amidst the flavours, and it’s a refreshing low ABV alternative to a gin and tonic. A special blend of fine white port designed to create the perfect port & tonic.

The stunning bottle has been designed by renowned Portuguese fashion illustrator António Soares, who has previously collaborated with FENDI, Karl Lagerfeld, and Chanel. It’s a really beautiful bottle, and perfectly suited for an all-important Instagram pic.

If you fancy making your own cocktail then try the following:
