Lillet Spritz is light, refreshing, and just a little more interesting than plain wine or prosecco.
Its gentle bubbliness adds a touch of complexity to its mellow flavor, which is just enough to make it a perfect pre-dinner sipping.
It also has hints of honey, candied oranges, and tropical fruit—but it’s not overwhelming.
It’s just enough bubbles to keep your tastebuds intrigued long after the glass is empty.
Plus, itisn’t particularly strong.
Still, it’s got enough kick that you’ll feel like you’re unwinding after a busy day without feeling like you’ve drank too much.
If you’re looking for something refined yet playful and easygoing, this spritz is just the thing.
Vesper Martini is a beautiful, strong cocktail.
And it’s not just a drink; it’s an experience.
It has a bit of sweetness that offsets the bitter bite of the dry gin, but it’s still cool and crisp like you’d expect from a classic stirred cocktail.
It’s also refreshing and has vodka to give the extra kick you’d expect from a boozy drink.
But here’s what makes this cocktail so unique: you can tweak it to your personal taste by adding more or less Lillet Blanc and changing the ratio between gin and vodka.
It’ll always taste good, but with each sip comes a new experience.
So, whether you’re mixing up one for yourself or serving up several rounds at your next party, this Vesper Martini will always leave people wanting more—and that’s exactly how you like it.

It’s got a sweet, slightly floral flavor that’s just as classy as it is fun.

And the dash of orange bitters will make you feel like you’re drinking something fancy.
You’ll also love how well this drink goes with seafood and lighter foods like salads or fish tacos.
But wait, French gimlets are also perfect for parties because they’re light and refreshing enough to be enjoyed by all—from newly turned twenty-one-year-olds who want to try something new to adults who want to relax after work with something bubbly.
And remember to put on the garnishes: fresh mint leaves and orange wheels will turn your guests into fans before they even take their first sip.
