Summer Shack Recipe
Adapted from "Mr. Boston Summer Cocktails"
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
- 8 ounces gin, chilled
- 8 ounces Lillet Blanc, chilled
- 4 ounces elderflower liqueur, such as St-Germain, chilled
- 12 dashes Orange Bitters
- 12 lemon twists, for garnish
Place all of the ingredients except the lemon twists in a large pitcher and stir to combine. Serve in chilled wineglasses garnished with a lemon twist. Alternatively, mix all of the ingredients in a punch bowl, add a large block of ice
, and serve in a wineglass garnished with a lemon twist.
