The original apéritif, Lillet Blanc is an iconic fixture in top cocktail bars around the world. Sip it chilled with frozen orange slices, make a refreshingly simple Lillet Spritz or add its delicate aromatics and touch of sweetness to class. A sip reveals subtle hints of honey, orange, lime, and mint. It’s Spring and Summer in a bottle.


lavender simple syrup- You can easily make this at home. I like to do it cause you know excatly what is in it, and you can control the amount of sugar in it.

lillet- This apéritif blanc is a spring and summer in a glass. You can serve it on the rocks, or add to cocktails for a touch of sweetness. It has notes of honey, orange, lime, and mint.

bubbly- bubbles, need we say more.

lemon juice- fresh cirtus notes is key to any good Spring cocktail.


So, you are hosting Easter this Sunday and looking to get some things off your list for smooth sailing. No problem. I would wait till the night before to ensure freshness as much as possible. You can pre-measure each ingredient, make a batch, and keep it in the fridge. Or you can premix it all together except the bubbly. It’s a must to open the bubbly right before guests get there. It will go flat. And trust me, no one likes flat sparkly wine or champagne.
