Old Etonian Spritz

Photo: Coral Von Zumwalt; Styling: Jeanne Kelley

Brandon Boudet, chef at Dominick's, Little Dom's, the 101 Coffee Shop, and Tom Bergin's (all in Los Angeles), came up with this refreshing twist on a classic Old Etonian cocktail: He tops it up with club soda instead of serving it neat. It's one of his favorite ways to enjoy Lillet, the French aperitif.
