Bastille Day Cocktails: What to Drink on Bastille Day

When it comes to deciding what to drink on Bastille Day, champagne is often the first choice but we’ve chosen three Bastille Day Cocktails with a difference.

Bastille Day Cocktails

To toast le quatorze juillet, we’re presenting three cocktails using regional mistelles and liqueurs namely Pineau des Charentes, Pousse Rapière and Floc de Gascogne (shown above from left to right). Low in alcohol, these are often served chilled or on ice as aperitifs but also play well in aperitif-style cocktails. You can read more about them in the Essential Guide to French Aperitifs, Mistelles, Liqueurs & Eaux de Vie.
