This cocktail is of Italian origins. Equal parts of campari, gin and sweet vermouth are lightly diluted with sparkling water. Serve as a pre-dinner drink to stimulate the appetite.
This beverage is wonderful. For years, I've tried to learn to "appreciate" the herbal bitterness of Campari, to no avail. The adding of sweet vermouth, is the ticket for me. Thanks for sharing. By the way, this Vodka drinker has found that it can be substituted for the gin! Cheers, Jeff - 13 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

I drink this cocktail frequently, especially during the Summer months. The Compari is a bit sour for me, so I always add a dash of orange juice. - 25 Dec 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
