A gin tonic with a kick! Campari is an aperitif obtained from the infusion of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water. With its distinct colour, aroma and flavour, Campari has always been a symbol of passion, sensuality. Campari is bitter & an acquired taste.
- Pour the gin and the tonic water into a chilled highball glass filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Top with Campari to add more color. Garnish with the lime wedge or blood orange.
Love Gin & Tonics...great summer refresher. I have added some Triple Sec as well and they are very yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!
I am a G&T lover and Campari added really nice touch to it! Not to mention the color, as well.
I prepared this for my husband as I'm not a gin drinker, but I did have a taste. I found it pleasant; it reminded me vaguely of another drink which I cannot put my finger on. In my opinion it no longer tastes of gin and tonic, nor of campari (which I suppose would be disappointing to people who like/are expecting either or both). My dh was in agreement; it was good but he won't be switching from his usual. And in the end, what you like in the way of a cocktail is very subjective and personal-so give it a try, it just may be for you! Thanks for posting, Rita.
