Tips & Tricks

Swap the Lillet Blanc with a splash of sparkling wine or champagne to introduce a bubbly texture, making the drink more festive and lightening the flavor.

Instead of absinthe, try rinsing the glass with a smoky mezcal or a different type of herbal liqueur, like Chartreuse, to add a new layer of complexity to the drink.
