Whether you like your cocktails as sweet as you are or prefer them a little more spirit-forward, we can guarantee you’ll have a new favorite drink by the end of the night.

Lillet is the official creator of the holiday, so it’s only fitting that all of our recipes include the classic French spirit. Try a traditional Lillet Spritz or the Spring Orange Spritzer, for a seasonal twist, crafted in partnership by the squad at Little Miss Party.
