Lillet Rosé!


A bottle of Lillet Rosé never lasts more than a few days in our house. Surprisingly versatile, Lillet Rosé can be sipped by itself or added to a cocktail. The rosé Lillet is sweeter and less dry than the blanc and has notes of stone fruit and herbs. 

Rosé Reverse Martini

Pictured at right. This recipe comes from the booklet attached to bottle of Lillet. It is strong and delicious! The following recipe is for one cocktail; double the measurements to make two drinks.

4 oz. Lillet Rosé

1 oz. Hendrick's gin*
2 dashes orange bitters

Combine ingredients in a cocktail glass, add ice.
Stir well!

Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with an orange peel

Corpse Reviver #2

Pictured at left. This is a classic that we really shook up by simply replacing the standard Lillet Blanc with Lillet Rosé.This recipe makes two cocktails.

2 oz. gin
2 oz. Prunier (an orange liqueur similar to Grand Marnier)
2 oz. Lillet Rosé
2 oz. fresh lemon juice

2 dashes of absinthe

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker, add ice. 
Shake well!
Strain into a glass.

*We used Hendrick's because we had it on hand but you can use any gin.
