I think the recent appearance of Cocchi Aperitivo Americano as a complement to Lillet Blanc has reinvigorated interest in the Corpse Reviver No. 2. Cochhi has more of the quinine bite that Lillet used to have before its reformulation in 1986. Cochhi is also sweeter, so if you use it, but the amount back to 3/4 oz.
