For a bracing drink, Lillet -- an aperitif made with wine -- is shaken with basil, gin, orange juice, and tonic. It's served on the rocks, garnished with more basil, a cinnamon stick, and a cucumber spear.

    We served this drink from pitchers at my wedding. We skipped the cucumber garnish and used vermouth in place of Lillet Blanc. It was a huge hit!
