Drinks

Two weeks ago I shared my recipe for Grapefruit Bourbon Sours with Honey Simple Syrup. It’s combination of tart and sweet makes for a refreshing cocktail, but since then, I’ve been craving the addition of something bitter.

 

While many people shirk at bitter’s punch, I find the taste addictive and perfect in a cocktail.  Campari’s bright color and bitter flavor pairs well with lemon’s sour pucker, and both benefit from a bit of the same Honey Simple Syrup.  For a lighter cocktail, forgo the Bourbon and add an extra 1/2 ounce of Campari.

Cheers!

  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1/2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey simple syrup
  • Soda water, to taste
  • Lemon peel, for garnish

Directions

In a cocktail shaker, combine the first three ingredients and ice to fill the shaker. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with a float of soda water, garnish with a lemon peel and enjoy!
