During the days of COVID-19, around 4:00 we start to think about what we are going to sip on before we start to make dinner. 9/10 times we end up sipping a Campari with vermouth, sparkling mineral water or sparkling wine. Basically a negroni without the gin, because if we were drinking gin everyday starting at 4PM we would turn into juniper berries.
Campari is an Italian classic apertivo, and if you know us, you know how much we admire Italian culture. The bitter and herbaceous notes with sparkling mineral water and vermouth hit the spot every damn time. That hour when you aren’t wanting a beer, not wanting to open a bottle of red wine (yet!), or not ready to start sippin’ a negroni… the golden hour of a Campari Spritz is a game changer.
If you don’t know… now ya know.
*Side note, I know close to nothing about cocktails but I do know what I like to sip on at home… so I hope you enjoy this drank as much as I do*
