K&L Notes

This famous aperitif wine has made a resurgence in recent years as the cocktail revolution has inspired a new generation of mixologists to explore tried, true, and traditional potations. Lillet Blanc is used in numerous classic cocktails, but can be served in a spritz, chilled, or on the rocks with a citrus twist. It consists of 85% Semillon and 15% macerated (primarily citrus) liqueurs. Think of it as a refreshing and delightful aromatized white Bordeaux.

Excellent aperitif wine to have, before moving on to the "next" stage. Drink it chilled or on the rock. The Lillet is also a good substitute to have when I run out of white wine (gasp!). Yes, that even happens to professional drinkers !

This white wine-based aperitif was created in 1887 in Bordeaux and originally had a high quinine content (presumably to treat malaria). Quinine is synthesized from the Kina-Kina tree, hence the drink’s original name: Kina Lillet. The original recipe was made famous by Ian Fleming in Casino Royal as a key component in the infamous “James Bond Martini.” This blend of fruit liqueurs and fortified wine was originally marketed as a tonic of great medicinal quality. These days there’s a new, friendlier Lillet with less quinine and it still lends itself to making cocktails, like the famous Edith’s Fizz.
