Friday Cocktail #26 - Lillet Blanc Refresher

Lillet Blanc is a French apéritif wine. Like other apéritifs, it is said to help stimulate one's appetite.

I paired my Lillet Blanc with some lemon seltzer because all I could think about while standing over a hot stove was a cool and refreshing drink.

Oh, how refreshing it was! And it certainly didn't hamper my appetite, either. ;)

Lillet Blanc Refresher
Serves 2

6 oz ice
8 oz Lillet Blanc, chilled
6 oz lemon-flavored seltzer water, chilled
2 orange wedges

1) Divide the ice evenly among two 10 oz rocks glasses.
2) Pour 4 oz of the Lillet into each glass.
3) Pour 3 oz of the seltzer into each glass.
4) Gently squeeze an orange wedge into each glass, dropping the orange atop the drink.

Serve with your favorite appetizers and toast to your appetite!
