Campari Cocktail Recipe
Campari is a potent, bitter liqueur (Italian aperitif) that has been used in modern drinks. Its flavor profile consists of hints of orange peel, cherry with clove, and cinnamon.
This Campari cocktail recipe is perfect as an after-dinner drink. It's also great to serve at parties and other gatherings. The ingredients are simple, but the taste is complex and elegant.
¾ oz. Vodka
1 oz. Campari
1 dash Aromatic bitters
Lemon twist for garnish
Pour vodka, Campari, and Aromatic bitters into an ice-filled shaker. Shake well.
Strain drink into a chilled cocktail glass or serve on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
An alternative to Campari is Aperol, which contains orange peel and rhubarb. Another one that could be substituted without much hassle would be bitters or Cynar, an artichoke-based liqueur with a bitter taste.
