Classy French Cocktails for Bastille Day

Bastille Day is tomorrow, and if you’re having a party, then it’s best to break out your finest French wines for dinner… but it’s also the perfect opportunity to impress your friends with some classy cocktails before dinner.

Made with the French aperitif Lillet—an aromatized wine, first made in 1872—these cocktails are the perfect way to celebrate France’s 14 Juillet. Not only is Lillet a classic French apéritif, using it to make a pretty drink is super easy: simply add some mixed berries, seltzer water, and voilà! You have succeeded in impressing everyone with your Frenchness.
