Drink In. Lillet [Thirsty Thursdays!].

Lillet is a French aperitif that's perfect for summer. It can be used as an ingredient in mixed drinks, like Martha Stewart's Lillet-Basil Cocktail, or Katie Lee's Kiwi-Lillet Gimlet, or even James Bond's Kina Lillet, or enjoyed on it's own.

When served, it should be well chilled (as the bottle even says) or even over ice, with a slice of lemon or lime. It's definitely on the sweet side, so I think on the rocks and with a citrus slice or two works best.

It's meant for the time of day when day turns to evening, and evening turns to night which is such a nice idea, and really makes it feel like an occasion (even if a daily occurrence) to have a glass.

Cheers to summer!
