One of the classics of Italian aperitivo hour, this drink is pretty, and pretty darn easy. It's forgiving, too. If you prefer more of a bitter taste, add a little more Campari; if you don't, add less.
- 2 to 3 ounces Campari
- 3 ounces Italian orange soda, preferably San Pellegrino Aranciata
- 1 round, thin orange slice, for garnish
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the Campari and orange soda; stir gently. Garnish with the slice of orange.
