1 1⁄2 oz Scotch
3⁄4 oz Aromatized wine, Cocchi Americano (or Lillet or Bonal Gentiane Quina)
3⁄4 oz Sweet vermouth (or Punt e Mes if using Lillet)

Stir, stain, straight up, cocktail glass.


Use Punt e Mes with Lillet, or substitute Bonal Gentiane Quina or Cocchi American for the original Lillet. Carpano Antica works well for the sweet vermouth.


Originally calls for Lillet Kina, a version more bitter than today's Lillet.

  • Not so good. — ★
  • My reference says 2 oz scotch, 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1/2 oz Lillet Blanc. — ★
  • I used Balvenie Double Wood, Bonal, and Boissiere sweet vermount. Excellent drink. More of a Manhattan than a Scotch drink. — ★★★★★
