Aperitivo Cocchi Americano

Sending the UK's cocktailist mixologalian types into a frenzy of anticipation, the famed Cocchi Americano has finally hit these shores.It's acclaimed as the most credible alternative to the long-discontinued Kina Lillet due to its high levels of cinchona, the fiercely bitter bark used to make quinine. This makes Cocchi Americano essential in recreating James Bond's Vesper Martini and the legendary Corpse Reviver #2 from The Savoy Cocktail Book.A big and orangey aperitif, in a similar style to Lillet Blanc, it also has a big quinine bitterness that makes it an essential cocktail ingredient.
