My go-to cocktail to sip during the summer is hands down a refreshing sprizter. My favorite spritzer is made with Lillet, which is a classic apéritif with a chic French heritage.

It was founded in 1872 and made from Bourdeaux grapes and carefully selected fruit macerations, aged in oak barrels. It’s a simple cocktail to prepare for elevated home entertaining. Perfect to sip  for  brunch or a

What is a Spritzer

A spritzer is light and refreshing cocktail made with a combination of cold wine and tonic water or sparkling water and soda, served over ice.

You can add in citrus, fruit and flowers to create a gorgeous, light and refreshing cocktail for any season!

To decorate the bar, place some fresh flowers in a tall vase on it. Then set all of the glass jars of lemonade, sparkling sodas, tonic water and, of course, the beautiful bottles of Lillet on the bar.

Have a row of wine glasses to fill as well. Add fruit, herbs and berries in small bowls and place an ice bucket on the bar to fill each wine glass with ice.

To set up a spritzer bar, we recommend using a bar cart, which is really the best station for a spritzer bar.

You can move it to the desired location, even outside and then just place all of the ingredients on it. It also looks elegant and classic. 

How to make a Spritzer 

The best part about making your own spritzer is that you can experiment with different flavor variations! Try 3 ounces Lillet Rosé with 3 ounces sparkling lemonade!

Or 3 ounces Lillet Blanc with 3 ounces sparkling elderflower soda and a splash of tonic water. If it’s not strong enough, add more Lillet! Add in fruit and flowers for a stunningly colorful cocktail. 

Making a spritzer is all about finding the right balance for you, which is why it’s such a great entertaining idea and activity for guests! 

How to Enjoy Lillet 

Besides using Lillet to make the most refreshing spritzer, you can also enjoy it alone over ice! If you want to add a dash of tonic water or club soda it makes a wonderful, light cocktail that’s truly fantastic!

Lillet has some wonderful recipes on their site that are absolutely delicious too.

Spritzer for Every Season 

To make a spritzer seasonal, use seasonal fruit and seasonal flavors. For example, winter could be Lillet Rouge with sparkling cranberry juice, cinnamon, thyme and tonic water.

Decorate the bar according to the season with fresh flowers and seasonal colors!
