Lillet Rouge and Ginger Cocktail

Slow Down With a Redheaded Ginger

If you've never had the aperitif known as Lillet Rouge, you'll want to know that it's fruity, complex, and satisfying in its own right. Essentially a red wine that's fortified with a dash of quinine, as well as orange and other fruit liqueurs, it can be enjoyed over ice with an orange slice for an ultra-simple tipple. But it shines even brighter when paired with sweet and spicy ginger beer. Add a wedge of grapefruit, and you've got an unbeatable combination of ease and excellence.

Bold name aside, this aperitif is light and refreshing. At 18 percent alcohol, Lillet Rouge is a natural fit for day drinking, as it'll offer a subtle buzz without knocking you off your feet.
