Dreaming of the fashionable streets of Milan? Us too. To feel that bit closer to the fashion capital all you need is a glass of Campari!
Founded in Milan, Campari’s original 1860 revolutionary recipe has never been altered. Vibrant red in colour, Campari’s unique and multi-layered taste is the result of the infusion of a variety of herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water – and it is made in Italy. Although this is the extent of what we know as the recipe has been kept a tight guarded secret.
Also a tightly-held secret is the Aperol recipe. Launched in 1919 at the Padua International Fair, Aperol has since taken the world by storm and has earned its name as the ultimate warm-weather drink. A definite crowd pleaser, Aperol is light on alcohol but rich with flavour. The complex comes from a fusion of high quality herbs and roots, and is also made in Italy.
Take one part gin (25ml), one part sweet vermouth (25ml) and one part Campari (25ml). Mix with ice and garnish with a slice of orange.
Take three parts Prosecco (90ml), two parts Aperol (60ml) and a splash of soda and you’ll have yourself a perfectly mixed Aperol Spritz.
