Kina Miele

from PDT

  • 1 oz. Dolin Dry Vermouth
  • .75 oz. Cocchi Americano
  • .5 oz. Nonino Gioiello
  • .25 oz. Clear Creek Pear Brandy
  • 1 dash The Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters

Stir with ice and strain over one large cube into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

Kina alludes to "quinquinas," which employ quinine as the primary bittering agent. Miele is Italian for honey, the base of Nonino's brilliant honey distillate. —Sean Hoard, Summer 2010
