Smartass corner:
 
- Lillet isn't a Vermuth! Both are fortified wines, but Lillet uses liqueur while Vermuth doesn't and Vermuth contains worm-wood,  which was once one of its primary infused botanicals, and Lillet doesn't.
 
- Fortified wine is a name for wine that has been toughened up with liquor (the ABV goes up to 20% or more)
 
- Aperitif – a drink consumed before a meal; the aper in “aperitif” comes from the Latin word for “open.” These drinks are literally intended to “open” the palate.
tonic wine -  a family of aperitifs known as tonic wines because of the addition of Quinine liqueur.
Lillet blanc is the key ingredient in James Bond's Martini derivative, the Vesper, a drink created in deference to the beautiful double agent in Ian Fleming's Casino Royale.
