* 1 1/2 ounces Campari
* 1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth
* Club soda
Pour the Campari and vermouth into an ice-filled highball glass and fill with club soda. Sip and enjoy.
I used Carpano Antica here but according to Wikipedia Cinzano sweet vermouth would be historically accurate, as:
It was originally known as the “Milano-Torino” because of its ingredients: Campari, the bitter liqueur, is from Milan and Cinzano, the vermouth, is from Turin (Torino).
I don’t know how accurate that Wikipedia article is, however, as it places the drink’s creation in the 1860s which is around 30 years earlier than the dates I get from Dale Degroff and Gary Regan. But at this point, over 100 years later, it doesn’t really matter.
I paired this with a zucchini and white bean pizza we made for dinner. Sarai doesn’t care for these but I was able to keep with the theme by making her an Italian Greyhound, a drink we often get at a local bar here, which is just a standard greyhound with the addition of a splash of Campari.
* 1 1/2 ounces vodka
* 1/2 ounce Campari
* Fresh grapefruit juice
Pour vodka and Campari into an ice-filled collins glass and fill with grapefruit juice.
Our proportions were a bit different than usual due to our only having one grapefruit on hand, and not a very juicy one at that, but even a small amount of grapefruit does wonders to cut the bitterness of Campari for those who don’t care for it.
