Chaska's Dolce Vita Wine Shop August Drink Pick

Try this refreshing cocktail recommended by a local wine shop.
Port & tonic is a great cool drink for a hot day.

The warmest days of the year call for a bright, fresh and delicious drink, and white port and tonic is the perfect summer thirst-quencher. It is refreshing, low in alcohol and nicely balanced, especially if you use high-quality ingredients like Jack Rudy Small Batch Tonic ($16.95) and Burmester White Port ($17.95).   Directions: In a highball glass filled with ice cubes, pour 2 oz. white port, 3/4 oz. of Jack Rudy Small Batch Tonic and 4 oz. of sparkling water. Squeeze a lemon wedge into the drink. Retire to the veranda. —Dan Keyport, owner Dolce Vita Wine Shop in Chaska
