Lillet Blanc is a White Vermouth which has a golden colour with candied orange, honey, pine resin, lime and fresh mint aromas. Full and rich on the palate with a lovely, long aftertaste. Always serve well chilled and zest with a slice of orange or lime. From the current Casino Royale Movie, try James Bond's custom-blend martini named the VESPER, after his beautiful double agent girlfriend: 3 measures gin, 1 measure vodka, 1/2 measure Lillet Blanc vermouth.
Pour the gin, vodka and Lillet blanc into a cocktail shaker half-filled with cracked ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a large, thin slice of lemon peel, and serve.
