Gin, herbal bitters, and fortified wine. Remind you of something? Think again! This is NOT a Negroni.

Tarragon-Infused Lillet Blanc

How to make tarragon-infused Lillet Blanc? It's quite simple, actually. Shove a handful of fresh tarragon into a bottle of Lillet Blanc. Put it in the fridge overnight and strain. If you tie a string around the tarragon you can fish it out and leave the Lillet in the bottle. Done!
