Campari love, everybody tells me so
Campari love, no, no, no! (Yes, yes, yes!)
(sung to the tune of Can't Buy Me Love by The Beatles)
Andrew sang this to me the other day at the liquor store when I bought a bottle of Campari. Moments like that always make me so thankful that we found each other!
Andrew is out of town this weekend, and I made myself a pamplemousse as an apéritif last night before eating the shrimp scampi pasta I have whenever he is out of town. Isn't it stunning?
I've been trying to expand my palette for bitterness lately, and although a Negroni is a little much for me at this point, this cocktail is a good one to ease into liking Campari. Actually, it requires very, very little easing in because it is delicious. The Campari amplifies the flavor of the grapefruit, and it is as good as it is gorgeous.
1/2 ounce Campari
2 ounces fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, strained
2 ounces dry white wine
Fill a shaker with ice, Campari, grapefruit juice, and wine. Shake and pour into a glass.
Makes 1 drink.
