Shake, strain over crushed ice, top with more crushed ice. Garnish with crushed marcona almonds, finely channeled orange zest, and a fancy cocktail parasol if you've got one.


Cappelletti Aperitivo Americano Rosso is a bittersweet aromatized wine (a la Cocchi Americano) with a flavor somewhat like Campari. Feel free to substitute 1/2 oz Campari.

Perfectly balanced. The crushed almond/orange zest garnish is essential.

Made with Campari and didn't have any orange water so used bit more bitters and really good aperitif cocktail
