Cocchi Aperitivo Americano


This until-recently obscure Italian apertitivo has garnered attention for its similarity to Kina Lillet, the more quinine forward and now defunct original formulation of Lillet Blanc. With a foundation of Moscato d'Asti fortified and flavored with gentian, cinchona, citrus and other botanicals, use this in place of Lillet, especially in the Vesper or Corpse Reviver #2, or simply drink over ice with a splash of soda.


Since 1891, Cocchi has produced wine-based aperitifs and hundred percent Piedmontese sparkling wines following the best traditions of Asti area. Today, the winery still maintains its artisan character and follows the original recipes formulated by founder Giulio Cocchi, to craft the distinctive aperitifs that have made the Cocchi a household name.
