Lillet Noyaux

Sounding so French, this cocktail is really just the names of two ingredients. Lillet Blanc is an aromatized and fortified wine from the Bordeaux region. Creme de Noyaux is a nutty, pink liqueur made with peach pits and almonds. Together, this drink tastes very French with just a hint of gin to cut the sweetness.

Remember this cocktail for one of those low ABV drinks. The main ingredient, Lillet, is not as strong as a 80-proof gin. And the gin is a small component of the overall drink.
  •  1 /12 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • 1/2 oz. gin (Vitae Old Tom used)
  • 1 tsp. creme de Noyaux (Tempus Fugeit used)
  • orange twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist the orange peel over the drink and drop it in.
