My Summer 2016 Cocktail - The Bastille Day Boisson

I had this cocktail for a Bastille Day preview party for Ricard, the traditional French Apéritif, and it has since become a mainstay in my summer repertoire.  This cocktail is light and refreshing, and has a wonderful balance of sweetness, bubbles, and summer herbal flavors from the Ricard and from the fresh Herbs de Provence that garnish the drink.  This is a gorgeous little number that will help get you through the dog days of summer! Enjoy!
