Lillet Blush

Friday, October 3, 2014

In honor of this weekend's groom, who adores gin, I'm serving up a blushing Lillet cocktail that packs a gentle punch. I hope you'll join me in toasting the happy couple!

Lillet Blush

2 oz Lillet Rosé
1 oz gin
1/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 dashes Peychaud's bitters
egg white

In a shaker, combine Lillet Rosé, gin, lemon juice, bitters and the white from one egg; shake vigorously without ice for 10-15 seconds. Add ice, then shake vigorously for an additional 5-10 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Notes: Lillet Rosé is a charming cocktail ingredient that I like just as much over ice, with a spritz of soda or all on its own. I'd pair it with an easy-going gin like Plymouth in this cocktail–cheers! 


  1. This is so super femenine. Love the color.

  2. What a lovely drink! Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding!

  3. Such a beautiful drink! And it sounds delicious too.
