  • Will try with Cocchi Americano under the theory that the Lillet Blanc was the old formulation.

Made this with Kina L'Aero D'Or to try to get closer to old Lillet. I'm never quite sure about this much orange juice in sour-ish cocktails, and my trepidation was borne out here. Not altogether unpleasant, but I wouldn't make it again.

Tried to do it with acid corrected orange juice and clearly needs another sweetener in that case. I suspect even naturally needs some. Not good with this plan.
