#FoodTravelSeries Ep.9: A Taste Of Porto

In episode 9 of the #Foodtravelseries @portofoodtours gives us a cocktail tutorial on how to make Porto Tónico also known as Port and Tonic 🍸 🇵🇹

When visiting Porto, there’s one thing you have to try and that’s Port wine. A wine deeply attached to the historical background of Porto in Portugal.

Port wine is a Portuguese fortified wine produced with distilled grape spirits exclusively in the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of Portugal. It is typically a sweet, red wine, often served as a dessert wine, although it also comes in dry, semi-dry, and white varieties.
