This bracing summer aperitif rides the line between sweet, sour, and bitter. It draws its name from the Italian word for grapefruit, pompelmo, and the origins of its two main ingredients. Campari was originally made in Milan and Carpano, who makes our beloved Punt e Mes, is based in Turin.
1.5 oz Campari
1.5 oz Punt e Mes
2 oz pink grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
1 oz brown sugar syrup*
Build in a highball glass over ice, stirring to combine.
*brown sugar syrup: combine equal parts brown sugar and filtered water in a jar and shake to combine.
