Lillet Vive

 When Lolo got home today after his first day back at work after the holidays, I thought he could do with a nice apero & me too (of course)
When I said I was fixing is something with Lillet, he immediately said:
 Lillet, that's a vintage drink! In the 19thirties, this was the aperitif in vogue all over the world. So he could have a point there. People used to drink it on special occasions.
But I think the vintage bottle and the taste are very contemporary. (he liked it too)

Parfait alors! And perfect on a very hot day! Lillet vive!

So here's the recipe (the official one)
I used Elderflower Tonic and raspberry instead of strawberry, but also very good.
