This original cocktail creation pays hommage to the links between France and Cuba in the XIXth century. Lillet is a French wine-based apéritif. Its story starts near the Sauternes region, in Podensac, near the merchant harbour of Bordeaux in the 1800's. At the same time, across the Atlantic, the rum was about to meet the casks of sweet white wine.

The notes of orange balance perfectly the drink while the tonic water enhances the sensation of freshness of the cocktail. The rum and the wine-based apéritif complement one another perfectly.
