Keep it simple for Bastille Day on July 14th with two stylish cocktails made with Lillet, France’s favourite wine aperitif. Try it neat over ice or add lemonade to the red variety et voila, a French twist on the British Pimm’s.
Lillet Blanc on ice
50ml chilled Lillet Blanc
Pour over ice for an aperitif as they do in France or add sparkling mineral water for a Lillet Blanc Spritzer.
Lillet Rouge Cup
50ml Lillet Rouge
Wedges of orange and summer fruits
Fill a glass with cubed ice, pour over the Lillet Rouge, top up with lemonade and add fruit.
