A Luscious Lillet to End A Summer Day

On summer evenings we've been serving Lillet to friends who stop by our outdoor living room and "stoop it" -- South Philly jargon for hanging out on the stoop, sharing a drink and some laughs.  So simple, so elegant, with notes of honey and candied oranges balanced by a bit of dryness and a long luscious after taste.  Best served chilled, on the rocks as the sun sets and the cares of the day slip away on a soft breeze.

What's your favorite summer aperitif?
