  1. Fill mixing container with ice. Pour in vodka and Lillet blanc aperitif wine. Stir for 2 minutes, until very cold. Strain into 4 cooled martini glasses.
  2. Cut a fresh twist of lemon peel OVER THE GLASS and drop into drink (the zest and spray of this action - falling into the glass - is crucial!)

Not bad. Though I actually used a lot MORE LILLET and a lot LESS VODKA and it came out fine.
