Cocchi Americano would be a good sub for the historic Lillet Kina. The original recipe is given in fractions. The above is scaled to a 3 oz cocktail.

A nice, accessible cocktail. Added 1d Bittermens Grapefruit bitters for a bit more depth, and used Cocchi Americano. I used Spanish Brandy; cognac would be better. (3 stars)
