About Big Tree Bottles

August Feature:
All month long, enjoy 10% OFF Cocchi Americano.

Food & Wine says:
"Cocchi (pronounced COKE-ee) is an Italian aperitif wine, which makes it similar to the French Lillet. Made from Moscato di Asti, it’s gently flavored with herbs and spices (including gentian, orange peel, elderberry, and more). The result is a nice balance of dry and sweet, and delicious to sip on its own before dinner over ice. But it’s incredible in cocktails too, and, at just 16.5% alcohol, a much lighter alternative to spirits."

"Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet," James Bond once instructed a bartender in Casino Royale. While Lillet is still around, some bartenders think Cocchi Americano is actually more similar to the Lillet made in Bond’s day — so it’s perfect in Bond’s favorite Vesper. We’re changing the formula a bit, because just one of those Bond-style drinks is an astounding amount of alcohol for a single cocktail—unless you’re in MI-6, we guess.

Instructions: In a mixing glass with ice, combine 1 1/2 ounces of gin, 1/2 ounce of vodka, and 1 ounce of Cocchi. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a big lemon peel, twisting it over the surface of the drink to spray its citrus oils.
