    I couldn't find the Lillet Rose either, although I have a wonderful store that will special order it for me. I'm not that patient; I made this with the Lillet Blanc and it turned out beautifully. It's still a gorgeous color and the edible flower garnish really makes this cocktail look special. I will definitely be making these for many brunch gatherings in the future.

    No luck finding Lillet Rose in stores or online. There should be a source for this very mysterious ingredient!

    I can't find Lillet Rose, only blanc or rouge. Would this work with either of those?
