LILLET’S Bastille Day Cocktails

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 4.01.23 PM

Bastille Day is coming up on July 14th!

Lillet, the quintessential French aperitif, has created three cocktails using the three variations—Lillet Blanc, Lillet Rouge, and Lillet Rosé, which are named after and pay homage to the French motto: Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité (which translates to liberty, equality, fraternity in English) to celebrate the beginning of the French Revolution and storming of the Bastille in 1789.

Cheers!
