Recipe: Lillet Summer Spritz Cocktail

In my head Summer officially starts in May, but if we’re going by the traditional calendar then we still have a few weeks to go until the official start on June 21st.

One of my favorite activities during the summer is to have friends over for some BBQ and fun cocktails! Lillet is one of my favorite mixers to use for drinks and the Lillet Blanc is the perfect light, white and fruity balance for the season!

Here are two ways I enjoy this delicious French aperitif!

Lillet + Tonic Water

Ingredients

3 parts Lillet Blanc

3 parts Fentimans pink grapefruit tonic Water

Garnish: grapefruit slices or cucumber slices

Directions: Build over 3 large ice cubes in a tall wine glass and garnish with grapefruit slice or cucumber slices
