  • fucking delicious — ★★★★★
  • A classic appertivo. This drink often goes in the direction of much more seltzer but I really like the 1:1:1. — ★★★★
  • Excellent with 1.5 oz sweet vermouth, 1.5 oz Campari, about 3 oz soda water, and an expressed orange peel. — ★★★★★
  • Wedge might be better than a slice, as I like the drink better with a squeeze of orange. — ★★★★
  • Bracingly bitter and refreshing, makes an excellent aperitif. Do not use too big a glass or stir too much that it gets watered down. — ★★★★

Improved recipe to specify the amount of soda (equal parts of all ingredients). Added a reference to the Campari website.
