As our fearless leader Leslie Sbrocco says: “I’ve always been a huge fan of Port. Whether a 20 Year Old Tawny (my favorite), a late bottled or classic vintage, Ports are beautiful wines. But, it’s often a challenge to get drinkers to discover the joys of sipping one with cheeses, savory dishes, chocolates and simply solo. Enter Croft Pink — a delicious entry point for those wanting to try Port. Garnet-hued and lightly sweet, it’s made with traditional Portuguese grape varieties in a lighter style. Imbibe it alone well-chilled, over ice, or in a cocktail. Welcome to the sweet side of life.”
You can see why we’re excited to announce another #TGTaste Twitter chat on August 18 at 5 PM PST sponsored by Croft Pink Port. Our hosts for this event are Lorenzo Bakewell-Stone, the Global Brand Ambassador for Croft Pink, and of course, head Thirsty Girl Leslie Sbrocco. In fact, Leslie will be revealing her own signature cocktail made with Croft Pink during the Twitter chat.
Each of the Thirsty Girl local chapter heads are being sent a bottle of Croft Pink Port to share with their local Thirsty Girls, and we’ve chosen several lucky Twitter tasters who will also receive a bottle of their own to taste and experiment with to create their own cocktails. We’ll all be sharing tasting notes, recipes and food pairings during the chat.
Want to taste along? Use this page on the Croft Pink web site to find a location near you to get your own bottle of Croft Pink.
