Campari is having quite a time of it at the moment, flaunting its herby, bitter-orange Italian swagger in pop-up bars all over the place. Over at Bookshelf Boyfriend, it has mostly been popping up in the form of a Negroni – which has the double benefit of being ridiculously delicious AND ridiculously quick and easy to make: equal parts Campari, gin, sweet vermouth, in a glass, stir (ice if you have time!)
Try this twist on a classic Negroni if you’re feeling prosecco-rich and gin-poor…or if you’re feeling a bit broken after Christmas and need to ease up on the alcohol! Substituting the traditional gin for prosecco (or any other dry sparkling wine you may have been given over Christmas) lessens the alcohol content, making it a friendlier drink for long New Years Eve parties, plus the added bubbles make it rather festive.
An inch of Campari
An inch of sweet vermouth
An inch of prosecco*
*If you want to make this a longer drink, just lengthen with more prosecco – still totally gorgeous.
Pour the Campari and sweet vermouth into a glass, over ice if you like, and top with prosecco.
