The official liqueur of Bastille Day is Lillet, a French aperitif wine made from wine and citrus liqueurs that has a bitter orange flavor.

As an aperitif wine, Lillet can be served chilled or over ice, with, naturally, sliced citrus. But you can also make a refreshing spritzer with the white wine. Bar Tabac on Smith Street shares their recipe for a Lillet Spritzer.
