Lillet Spritz, French nibbles and alfresco masterclasses are on the menu at this blooming wonderful terrace.
Head to the OXO Tower Bar this month to experience the beauty of the Lillet Terrace – a stylish garden-esque place inspired by the dreamy lands of southern France. For six weeks, Lillet, the timeless and elegant French apéritif from Bordeaux, will be serving up a variety of summery cocktails set to the backdrop of London’s most iconic sights.
Adorned with beautiful flowers and filled with sophisticated tipples, the Lillet Terrace is the place to visit this summer for a perfect day-to-night escape. Sit back on the red and white, French-themed chairs and sip one one of Lillet’s delicious cocktails. On the menu at the Lillet Terrace you’ll discover a world of French aperitif.
Cocktails range from the Lillet Blanc Spritz: a simple, elegant spritz made up of Lillet Blanc and London Essence Tonic water, built over ice, to the Lillet Royal Fizz (bright and fruity with Lillet Rouge and Creme de Fraise charged with OXO Brut Champagne) and the Wet Vesper Martini (Lillet Blanc, Absolut Drop Vodka and Plymouth Gin).
The flower-festooned “French rendez-vous” terrace has been designed with the true essence of the Lillet lifestyle at its heart and you’ll be able to experience this with the perfect photo opportunity on the blooming Lillet swing. Snap a photo to the backdrop of the London skyline with a drink in hand.
And if the flower-adorned terrace has inspired your arty side, come along to a Lillet watercolour masterclass and brunch. Hosted at the OXO Tower Bar & Restaurant, the event starts with a welcome drink courtesy of French aperitif Lillet. Then, a Lillet Brand Ambassador will teach you all about this delicious aperitif and how to mix up the perfect spritz. Meanwhile, you’ll also be able to dive into some truly scrummy breakfast nibbles from the OXO Tower menu. Once you’re all fed, the cocktail masterclass begins, held by Lillet Brand ambassador, Clotilde Lataille, offering you the opportunity to sample both Lillet Blanc and Lillet Rose and mix up your very own spritz. Guests will have the chance to immortalize their Spritz creation through watercolour painting, drawing inspiration from their drink’s colours and flavours, guided by Clotilde, Lillet’s in-resident artist.
