Tasting Notes

Made from the same recipe since 1891. Moscato d'Asti is the base with a variety of herbs, fruit and spices with a particular focus on cinchona (bitter bark that makes quinine), gentian and citrus. Try it in your next Vesper or Corpse Reviver #2 or as is done in Italy, serve chilled with ice, a twist of orange peel and a splash of soda to bring out all it its natural aroma and fragrances.

To enjoy Cocchi Americano, just pour some in a glass with ice and top with La Croix (flavor choice: yours). If you have the energy, finish it with a twist and a squeeze of whatever citrus you've got lying around. There. Even I can do that.
