The Sassy Bordeaux

This update of the Bordeaux Cocktail evokes the region with Lillet Blanc, its signature aperitif, and fresh, local tarragon. The former melds citrus fruit with a hint of quinine. The latter adds a slight licorice note. Gin—in place of vodka—as the spirit base rounds out the herbal mix. Enjoy it onboard the S.S. Bon Voyage on our Brilliant Bordeaux itinerary or make it at home!
