Libation Creation: Ginger Lillet with a Twist
My apologies for my radio silence... traveling is not conducive to cooking or blogging. However, it is conducive to eating! So that is what I have been doing. Eating lots of great food, but not making much of my own. Now that I am back, I'm going to ease my way back into blogging with a cocktail recipe. This tasty drink is actually the product of a happy mistake. I was in the checkout line with what I thought was lillet blanc, but to my surprise, I came home with lillet rouge. I was at a bit of a loss at first, but did a little research and a little tasting and I created a zesty and refreshing ginger lillet cocktail. If you like sangria, you will love this light & fun little cocktail. Bottoms up!
Makes: 1 Generous Cocktail
4 oz Lillet Rouge
6 oz Fever Tree Ginger Beer
-Pour the lillet rouge and ginger beer over ice in a high ball glass.
-Garnish with an orange twist for fun.
