Lillet is a true apertif that was first created in 1872 near Sauternes in the Graves region of France.  Lillet is a delicious blend of bordeaux wines and handcrafted fruit liqueurs produced in Podensac.  It has been one of my favorite cocktails since first having a sip at the renowned Fearrington House.  As usual I was having a hard time deciding my first drink of the evening, and was asked if I would like a Lillet or Dubonnet.  Completely unaware of either, I was quickly educated and have been a big fan since.  Lillet is available now in blanc, rouge, and even rose.  I have yet to try the rose, but I believe I will enjoy the Lillet rose better than most rose wines!  I drink Lillet beach side, traditionally on the rocks, with citrus garnish or for breakfast like this fabulous grapefruit Lillet slush.

What you’ll need:

1 part Lillet blanc
1 part freshly squeezed ruby grapefruit
1/2 part good vodka
ice
orange wedge – garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix ingredients together on the rocks, garnish with orange or other citrus wedge, even fresh mint or a blackberry.
