French aromatized wine: a white wine infused with fruits, herbs and other botanicals. It was originally known as Kina Lillet, invented in 1887 and flavored with quinine. Lillet Blanc replaced Kina in 1986 and has a lower quinine content. It’s become popular in bars and restaurants for its crisp, floral flavor.
Lillet Rouge is a ruby red wine aperitif from France, made from merlot and cabernet sauvignon grapes. It smells and tastes of grape soda, vanilla, and orange. Its bitter notes are more substantial and lasting.
