Aperitif - Lillet Rosé
A new product for the 21st century from Lillet, on release its first in more than 50 years. It's a blend of red and white Bordeaux wines mixed with herb and fruit liqueurs before ageing in oak. An exceptional aperitif in the same vein as its rightly famed Blanc and Rouge.
Why wouldn’t you pair grape-based Lillet Rose with Champagne? This cocktail takes two seconds and is guaranteed to impress at your next brunch or afternoon garden party.
Instructions: In a coupe, combine 1 1/2 ounces of Lillet Rose and 3 ounces of Champagne. Give a quick stir and garnish with a lemon peel, twisting over the surface of the glass to spray its citrus oils; then discard that peel and garnish with an orange half-moon.
