Wanted something sophisticated but refreshing to sip on the porch on a fine spring evening. This fit the bill soooo well. I tweaked the Apparent recipe in The Ultimate Cocktail Book and replaced the Dubonnet with Lillet blanc. There's a new bottle chilling in our fridge for the upcoming season, taking my own advice about always having a bottle on hand.
Equal measure of a dry gin and Lillet blanc, and a dash of pastis - or maybe a little more - I like pastis! Shake with ice and pour into chilled glass with lemon twist.
More spring please.
