Our Lillet Gin Tonic is your choice for your next aperitif. Serve to your guests for a perfect start to the evening.

Serving your guests a Lillet Gin Tonic as an aperitif is the guarantee of a successful evening. Refreshing and invigorating, the perfect start to your dinner.

Ingredients for 1 cocktail:

  • 4cl Lillet Blanc
  • 2 cl of gin
  • Tonic 10 cl
  • 2 cl of agave syrup
  • 1 squeeze of lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • Slices of cucumber and strawberries as decoration

And this is how it is done:

  1. Half fill a white wine glass with ice cubes. Then add Lillet, gin, agave syrup and lemon juice to the glass and mix. Place a slice of cucumber and a halved strawberry in the glass and slowly fill with tonic water. Serve immediately.
  2. If you want to serve some cocktails as an aperitif, prepare the glasses for about half an hour without ice and tonic. Add ice cubes to the glass only when your guests arrive, stir briefly and then top up with tonic.

Good parties and dinner parties need a perfect start. The best way to welcome your guests is with a fresh aperitif, which will lighten the mood and lead to lively conversations. Our Lillet Gin Tonic is perfect for this. Lillet is still in fashion and thanks to the fresh citrus note and the light sweetness of the agave syrup, the taste is not overpowering. The perfect start!

Even mixed drinks, alcoholic or not, are simply part of a party. As an aperitif, we are happy to recommend surprising cocktails like the Lillet Gin Tonic. This slightly hot Chili Margarita or the classic Aperol Spritz are also suitable.

For your summer party or late summer dinner, we’ve rounded up lots of other great cocktail and long drink recipes in our gallery. Take a look and refresh yourself and your guests.

There are still fresh strawberries to buy here and there. Use the last few days and weeks to conjure up strawberry sangria, for example. We show you exactly how this works in the video. Excellent!
