Summer Shack Recipe

Summer Shack
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 5 mins | Makes: 12 servings

Admittedly a little girly, this chic wine cocktail is the perfect pitcher drink for a bridal shower, pool party, or lazy picnic. Light Sauvignon Blanc is fortified with Lillet Blanc and a touch of herbal gin and floral elderflower liqueur.

What to buy:
St-Germain is an elderflower liqueur that can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.

  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle Sauvignon Blanc, chilled

  • 4 ounces elderflower liqueur, such as St-Germain, chilled
  • 12 dashes Orange Bitters
  • 12 lemon twists, for garnish
INSTRUCTIONS
