Adapted from a recipe by Joy Napolitano, Elle Restaurant, Rome, Italy.

“This drink was created for the Campari bartender competition in Italy. The mix of ingredients is really delicious. The Campari is the main element and the other ingredients exalts its flavor.  The co2 will give us the freshness of this drink and the bubbles emanate a real fragrance of elderflower and citrus,” Joy Napolitano

40 ml Campari

30 ml Noilly Prat original Dry vermouth

30 ml St. Germaine elderflower liqueur

orange and lemon twists, as garnishes

Using appropriate equipment, put these ingredients together, including the twists, and carbonate the drink.  Or shake over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Add the garnishes.


gaz sez:   I made a batch of these in my soda-stream machine and they went down real well at a friend’s party.  Nice and simple.  And delicious.
