This classic aperitif, like all the greats, is very simple to make but hugely satisfying to drink.
When guests arrive early and the dinner is still in the oven this should be put into everyone's hand to leave you with time to get to the task at hand.
Simplicity is often the key to the best results. And this drink proves the point. All it takes is a touch of tonic water to make an irresistible, thirst-quenching cocktail.
1 part (1.25oz, 3,75cl) Campari
3 parts tonic water
Build the drink in a juice glass with ice. Garnish with a slice of lime.
A glass of Campari smells bitter in the way that orange rinds and bitter greens smell. Tasting it, however, reveals much more. The bitterness is still strong, at the start and again at the finish, but there are notes of sweet cherry and orange, and a spicy edge reminiscent of cinnamon.
