The quintessential Italian aperitivo was invented by a Milanese, Gaspare Campari, in the 1860s. It is a secret mixture of herbs, bitter orange peel and other aromatic substances steeped in an alcohol base. The resulting slightly bitter flavor, combined with club soda on ice and given a hint of citrus, whets the appetite for the meal to come.
- Ice cubes
- 1/3 cup Campari
- 2/3 cup club soda
- Twist of lemon peel or a lime wedge
Fill a tall, narrow 12-fluid-ounce glass half full with ice cubes. Pour the Campari over the ice cubes. Add the club soda and stir. Garnish with a lemon twist or lime wedge.
