An acquired taste, not for everyone.

General Comments
Campari is a bitter herbal liqueur, which is extremely popular in its native Italy. It's light on the alcohol (26%), making it an excellent aperetif. I am fond of herbal liquers, and I have long been partial to Campari. Campari is an acquired taste: very aromatic, very bitter, and hard to describe to the uninitiated. Most often, I drink this mixed as an Americano: Equal parts Campari and red vermouth, on the rocks, with a dash of orange bitters and a splash of tonic water. When I'm feeling lazy but crave the taste of Campari, I'll pour two ounces over ice. When I'm in the mood for Campari and a true cocktail, I'll mix a Negroni: two parts each Campari and gin (I prefer Bombay Sapphire), one part red vermouth, a dash of Angoustora Bitters, shaken with ice, strained, with an orange wedge. Aahhh. I want one right now...
