Squid Mixes: Ménage à Quatre
Nope, sorry. I have not converted to a kinky sex blog. A Ménage à Quatre truly is a cocktail. It combines gin, lemon juice, triple sec and Lillet blanc in equal portions. I got my recipe from Drinking French by David Lebovitz. The result is quite citrusy, both lemon and orange.
Lillet is new for me. It is an aromatised wine from Bordeaux. The aromas come mostly from orange peel: sweet oranges from Spain and Morocco and bitter oranges from Haiti. So between the triple sec and the Lillet, there's enough orange to compete with the lemon juice.
