Happy Hour: The Lillet Cocktail

Given the current weather situation in D.C. it seems a little odd to feature a summery, citrusy cocktail.  But rain be damned!  When I find a tasty libation, I feel the need to share.

Directions for Making a Lillet Cocktail

Add three ice cubes to a chilled champagne flute or other tall glass.  I use a highball.  Add one half-cup Lillet to the glass.  Fill the rest of the way with champagne.  Cut an orange wedge, and squeeze a bit of the fresh juice into the glass.  Garnish with a shaving of orange peel.

And since this cocktail was popularized in the late 1970s, I thought I’d choose this Kimono Wrap Gown from Halston Heritage (Shopbop, $995).  It just feels like it belongs on a California socialite who’s entertaining a group of Hollywood stars at a cocktail party by the pool.  Fondue set and platform shoes, not included.
