Lillet Reviver

Every now an then we sneak in a mid-week, little…in this case petite, recipe. This happens to be a cocktail from David Lebovitz’s new book of cocktails, Drinking French. Infused with Lillet blanc, gin and Grand Marnier…with a lick of absinthe…it is totally worth risking cut crystal coupe glasses in the cockpit for evening sundowners.

Jump to Recipe

1 ounce gin
1 ounce Grand Marnier, Cointreau or triple sec
1 ounce Lillet blanc
1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Pastis or absinthe
Lemon or orange twist for garnish

Add the gin, Grand Marnier, Lillet and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake for a few seconds until well chilled. Swirl the Pastis or absinthe around in a chilled coupe glass and pour out the excess. Strain the drink into the glass and garnish with a citrus twist.
