The holidays have officially arrived, and I have to admit, I am a little nervous. We usually go to my in-laws’ house on the East Coast but this year they are coming to the West Coast and it’s all up to me to uphold the traditions and make sure everyone has a good time! I am trying to adopt the “casual, laid back” hosting vibe, but it’s hard! I want to make sure everything is perfect. One of the ways to start a party off on a good foot is to have a great cocktail prepared right when everyone arrives. Timmy and I made up this delicious Lillet recipe and it’s going to be a hit. I just know it.
If you didn’t already know, Lillet, a quintessentially French brand, is an aperitif wine which is an alcoholic beverage traditionally served before a meal. It is a wine-based aperitif made of macerated fruit liqueurs and It makes you hungry and tastes delicious. So that’s a win-win. Below is my recipe using Lillet Blanc for Whit’s Spritz, a festive concoction. Please drink responsibly.
You can check out the recipe testing and cocktail on my Instagram.
- 3 Parts Lillet Blanc
- 2 Parts soda water
- 1 Part pomegranate juice (YUM!)
- Build over 3 large ice cubes in a tall wine glass
- Garnish with fresh cranberries and rosemary (FESTIVE!)
