This spirit-free cocktail features the less well-known rosé port, which combines the delicate taste of rosé with the richness of good port. Leading with herbal notes and ripe red fruits, it’s a wonderful cocktail for the summer months, and gives port a new lease of life.
100ml rosé port (we use Offley, which you can get from Waitrose, Ocado, Amazon and specialist drinks shops)
Juice of ½ lime
125ml ginger ale
1 lime wedge and 1-2 strawberries, to garnish
Fill a bowl glass or large wine glass with ice cubes. Add the port, then squeeze in the lime juice. Add a generous splash of ginger ale and stir with the handle of a long spoon. Garnish with a wedge of lime and a strawberry or two, and get ready to welcome summer.
