In Praise of Lillet Blanc

The other day I invented a tasty sangria-like concoction of Lillet Blanc mixed with fresh blood orange juice. Very spring…or at least not so winter.

I’ve been a bit obsessed with Lillet Blanc since reading in Kim Sunée’s Trail of Crumbs acknowledgments that she drank too much of it while writing the final drafts of her memoir. Other than including a recipe for wild peaches poached in Lillet Blanc and lemon verbena, however, she didn’t drink this beverage in the narrative of the book, so I asked her in the blog interview (which she still plans to get to eventually) how one drinks it. She wrote me last night that she likes it slightly chilled with a twist of Meyer lemon or orange.

    I like it very cold on ice with a slice of orange myself.
