If your bar is anything like mine, you probably have a few random mixers and liquors that you don’t use very often. A while back, I bought Campari to make Negroni’s and sort of forgot that I had it.
I asked my husband to bring up all the mixers and liquors we don’t use from our basement bar so I could concoct a cocktail.
I searched for Campari recipes and found several for the Boulevardier. A classic drink that’s basically a Negroni with Bourbon instead of Gin.
- 1 1/2 oz Bourbon
- 3/4 oz sweet vermouth
- 3/4 oz Campari
- Orange or lemon twist
The Campari Christmas Kiss adds a few things to it, and I adjusted the ratios:
- 1.5 oz bourbon
- 1 oz Campari
- 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
- .25 oz Roses Lime Juice
- 1 dash Angostura Bitters
- 1 lemon twist on top
Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with cherry and cranberry.
