I can't get lillet blanc where I am from and was wondering if there is any substitute? I want to make this recipe and a friends cottage this weekend but can't get a hold of lillet blanc.
It would be hard to get the quinine taste in a substitution,IMO. If you get your hands on some this is the very best recipe I have ever tasted.http://www.gourmet.com/recipes/1990s/...
Byrhh is red, but has a strong quinine flavor, and might work. http://www.astorwines.com/SearchResul...
It's a little stretch , but a Martini (or Cinzano) bianco vermouth--but not the dry white version--has some of the sweetness and herbal/floral qualities you want. Or a Pineau des Charentes.
Just use some Savignon Blanc.
Based on your recipe, you're not going to miss the sweetness of the Lillet Blanc with the orange, raspberries and lambic that you are already using.
Are you in a position to order it on the Internet?
Nope doesn't deliver to Canada
