<br />Four strong-tasting

<br />Four strong-tasting ingredients, yet they don't clash. Instead, they come together nicely to make Collo Rosso (Italian for Red Neck). Although the Campari's taste tops all the others, the rum and bourbon are not far behind. And fortunately, the sweetness of the vermouth manages to peek through and give the necessary sweetness to provide the balance needed to make this the great drink that it is.

This is one of those drinks that will be enjoyed either before or after dinner--or on a lazy weekend afternoon, while watching your favorite college team (such as the U of Mich) whoomping on your college's favorite enemy team). Make the Collo Rosso, sit back, and enjoy. I rated this libation as a 4.0.
