French Intervention from Le Bilboquet
Just in time for spring, Le Bilboquet launches a new signature cocktail called French Intervention. Elderflower liqueur highlights the tequila with hints of passionfruit, grapefruit, lemon, peach and pear- all signs of glorious spring. Not to be overdone, though, you’ll find the Cynar liqueur offsets the sweet. Cynar is an artichoke-based liqueur but tastes nothing like artichokes! It’s a bold bittersweet addition, with hints of 13+ herbs. From the patio at Le Bilboquet or at your dinner table at home, French Intervention is a dynamic cocktail you must try this season.
French Intervention: The Recipe
1.5 oz Lunazul Reposado tequila
1 oz elderflower liqueur
.25 oz Cynar liqueur
.5 oz fresh lime juice
Shake heartily and served in martini glass immediately.
About Le Bilboquet
Reminiscent of a charming European square, Le Bilboquet is located at the center of Buckhead Atlanta. Open daily for lunch and dinner, the bistro and bar offers a vibrant atmosphere paired with simple, classic French cooking, bringing a slice of Parisian café culture to the neighborhood and a natural gathering spot to enjoy a chilled bottle of rosé alfresco alongside classic bistro fare or a draft beer and croque monsieur at the bar.
Illuminated with natural light, the dining area incorporates quintessential Parisian elements like blue velvet banquettes, a two-color terrazzo floor and pewter bar counter and features a rotating collection of paintings and photography by locally and nationally acclaimed artists and ornate floral arrangements. Outside of the restaurant, guests are transported to a Parisian sidewalk café with traditional French bistro woven rattan chairs and tables.
