Fresh citrus juice, Lillet Rosé and prosecco make a pretty punch for winter months with notes of floral, sweet, and bitter to please all palates.
Prep Time: 10minutes
1cupstrained citrus juice (I used 1 each: Meyer lemon, tangerine, blood orange, pink grapefruit, plus a squeeze of regular lemon juice to sharpen the flavors)
1cupLillet Blanc or Lillet Rosé
1-2cupsprosecco or other dry sparkling wine
citrus rounds and wedges, for garnish
Combine the citrus juice, Lillet and 1 cup of the prosecco in a large pitcher half-filled with ice cubes and some citrus rounds and wedges. Give a good stir and taste for balance, adding more lemon or grapefruit if the drink is too sweet, more Lillet or blood orange if you want more sweetness. Strain or scoop into cups and serve with ice or without. For extra sparkle, top off glasses with an extra pour of prosecco.
Double or triple the recipe if serving a crowd, or make smaller portions to order by shaking 2 ounces each citrus juice and Lillet with ice, straining it into glasses, and topping with chilled prosecco and a citrus round.For a lighter drink, or if you don't wish to crack a bottle of bubbly, serve the citrusy Lillet over ice with a pour of sparkling water.Nutritional values are based on one of four drinks.
