Campari Aranciata | Cocktail Party

Campari Aranciata

Looking for a bitter drink but can’t be arsed to pull out three bottles for a Negroni? Jason Wilson, author of Boozehound and frequent contributor to The Washington Post’s Spirits column, has just the solution with this super-simple highball.

It’s so simple, in fact, that you don’t even have to remember the ingredients – they’re right there in the name. Campari is the best choice for bitter-fiends, but it’s just dandy (albeit sweeter) with a sweet orange apéritif like Aperol.

The “Aranciata” in the name refers to Sanpellegrino Aranciata, an Italian orange soda. Any orange soda will do; it’s lovely with Orangina, for example.

Technically, you’re supposed to stir this one – but we love the interplay of the light-orange soda and Campari’s neon ruby red, so we give it only the slightest jiggle of the spoon before serving to preserve the lava-lamp effect.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
