Pink & Soda:
Open & capture the exiting fresh fruitful expression of Croft Pink port when diluted with soda water. Add some fresh fruits for an excellent low alcohol thirst quencher.
Muddle some melon chunks with half a chilli (without seeds) to extract the juice and the spiciness required to mix with a large measure of Croft Pink Port. Stir the cocktail with a few ice cubes and strain into half a melon, or a glass, to enjoy as an aperitif.
Cut a red pepper and use a quarter to muddle in a shaker. Add a spring of thyme and a large measure of Croft Pink Port, then shake and strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy on the side of green starter.
Apple & Pink Julep:
In a long glass, place 10 to 15 mint leaves with a shot of apple juice. Gently press to extract the full aroma of the mint and add a large measure of Croft Pink Port. Add some ice and swizzle until the cocktail is chilled. Fill the glass with more ice and garnish with a mint spring and an apple fan.
Frozen Pink Festival:
In a blender, place a few chunks of watermelon and 4 raspberries. Add a large measure of Croft Pink Port and 5 ice cubes. Blend everything, serve in a cocktail glass, and garnish with a couple of raspberries.
