While in Auchan the other day I was taking the escalator to the middle floor and it went passed the apéritif aisle.
It always has.
But never before did I notice the effect it had on me this time. I craved, I LUSTED for Lillet.
Lillet is a popular apéritif in Bordeaux. It's kind of like Sherry or Port, a mix of wine and other stuff - in this case "fruit liqueurs".
The type of fruit is unspecified. I suspect, like with mixed fruit jam, that it's turnip and rhubarb. Anyway, the result is a sweet, syrupy liquid that puts you in the mood to eat.
Or so the theory goes.
Of course I didn't buy any. That stuff is not cheap !
So picture my surprise when we went to the flat warming of a friend and there in the midst of the table was a bottle of ... Lillet.
Well that's that craving sorted for perhaps a year at least...
