Cocktail of the Week: Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail

7 Aug

It’s long past spring, but this weekend my friend and I decided we wanted something fancy to sip whilst we sat on the porch, so I decided to make a Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail I’d seen in Martha Stewart’s Living. According to Martha:

Lillet Rose, a fortified-wine blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Muscatel, has the aroma of flowers and ripe berries — perfect for a springtime aperitif.

Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail (makes 3)

  • 12 ounces Lillet Rose
  • 12 ounces Ruby Red grapefruit juice (I used fresh juice from yellow grapefruits)
  • 6 ounces gin

Combine 6 ounces Lillet, 6 ounces grapefruit juice, 3 ounces gin, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled. Strain and divide cocktail among 3 stemmed cocktail glasses (or just plain old drinking glasses, in our case). Repeat. Serve.
