It is definitely the time of year to mix up a cute cocktail and sit by the pool! If you want to try something new this season, consider Campari. If you like Aperol spritz drinks, you will want to try Campari next! This recipe is fruity and has a refreshing flavor for summer.
What is Campari?
We can consider Campari bittersweet, and it has flavors of cinnamon, orange, and cherry. It differs from Aperol, but it offers a similar type of flavor in a cocktail. It’s an Italian liqueur and is an apéritif.
To make your sweet summertime drink, combine rum, Campari, bitters, and flavored sparkling water or Sprite. Orange peels are perfect for garnish, and this drink definitely has a kick! Sime Campari already is considered a bitter drink, mixing it with bitters adds an extra dash of flavor.
In your cocktail glass, add ice, rum, Campari, and bitters. Top with sparkling water or Sprite. Enjoy!
