Lillet is the Perfect French Aperitif

Lillet is a great French aperitif and it’s perfect to serve during summer. Lillet is also perfect as a starter for your Bastille Day meal. The authentic James Bond Martini is Gin, Vodka and Lillet. It is made from Boudreaux wines and liqueurs which have a citrus flavor.

Lemon Lillet

My favorite way to serve Lillet is in a cocktail before dinner. I like to add more citrus flavor with a lemon simple syrup and then top it off with club soda. Grab a bottle of Lillet from the store and make this delicious cocktail this summer!
