Bordeaux | Lillet Rosé Martini

Bordeaux mapIn the south of the Bordeaux region, you’ll find Podensac, an area known for cobblestone streets, picturesque chateaus and, of course, the surrounding vineyards. Here, Lillet ($19, 18% abv) is a versatile wine-based apéritif, available in white, red and rosé. Enjoy it on the rocks with a curl of citrus peel, lightened in a spritz, or mixed into a cocktail like this martini variation.

Created for the steakhouse’s grand opening, this drink features Lillet Rosé, a fortified wine with floral, melon and sage tones. It’s the first new product from Lillet in 50 years.


2 ounces Lillet Rosé
½ ounce Hangar One Vodka
¾ ounce lemon juice
½ ounce St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
½ ounce simple syrup
Lemon peel


In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all ingredients except lemon peel. Shake well, and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Twist the lemon peel over the drink to release its oils, then discard the peel.
