1 1⁄2 oz Campari
3⁄4 oz Light rum (white, Cuban-style)
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1 oz Soda water (to top)

Shake, strain, rocks, top.


EGullet user Haresfur adds a float (or rinse) of green Chartreuse.


The backstory is too convoluted, odd, and oddly touching to get into here, so check the link.

  • Really nice. Bitter, but the orange really adds an interesting finish. — ★★★★
  • Tasted as I put ingredients in and seemed nicer without the rum! Used Havana Club -worth a try with a stronger rum — ★★★

a little bitter but a dash of Fee's Old Fashioned Aromatic Bitters rounded it out nicely.
