LCBO Food & Drink Early Summer 2024


This drink also works well with the slightly less sweet Lillet Rosé, so if you can find the pink version of this delicious aperitif, use it instead but adjust the recipe by adding an extra half-ounce of Lillet Rosé and cut the soda water out entirely.

The Left Bank French café society is fuelled by simple and bouncy lower-alcohol cocktails like this highball, which is an easy mix of sparkling Italian lem onade and Lillet—a French aperitif that’s made in Bordeaux by blend ing a small amount of fruit liqueur and herbs with white wine and then aging it in oak casks. Thanks to a touch of bitterness balanced with sweet fruit, it mixes well with just about anything. 1 or 2 small cucumber ribbons for garnish 1 1/2 oz Lillet Blanc ( LCBO 322297, $25.95 ) 3 oz sparkling Italian lemonade 1 oz soda water 1 strawberry for garnish 1. Fill a highball glass with ice and insert cucumber ribbon so that ice anchors it to inside of glass. Pour in Lillet, Italian lemonade and soda water. Add strawberry for garnish.
