Spring Thyme Spritz

Who is ready for all the SPRING Cocktails? I am so excited to make y’all a FUN & DELISH Spritz featuring Croft Pink Port. This Rosé Port Spritz is SPRING in a GLASS with strawberry & thyme syrup, fresh lemon juice, and is topped off with sparkling wine. The Croft Pink Port has tasting notes of cherry, raspberry, and hints of honey & grapefruit which makes this the PERFECT ingredient for your Spring Cocktail Lineup. 

I love keeping this port on hand for cocktails at home. It’s so versatile in cocktails from Spritz variations like this one to twist on classics like the NY Sour. I also love sipping on a simplistic Croft Pink Port and Soda – it’s so simple and comforting to make at home.
