A Grapefruit Jasmine Aperitif is a light, refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for a summertime aperitif. Lillet Rouge is a natural partner for grapefruit, and the bitters help to bring out similar citrus notes in the Lillet, while the gin and jasmine lend a light floral layer.
While this drink is lovely as a stirred cocktail, you can also omit the gin and top it with sparkling wine for a bright, less boozy version.
- 1-1/2 oz Lillet Rouge
- 1/2 oz gin
- 1/4 oz jasmine liqueur
- 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
- Lemon twist
- Add Lillet, gin, jasmine liqueur, and grapefruit bitters to a mixing glass with ice.
- Stir and strain into a coupe or aperitif glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
