Very nice. I wasn't going to devote an entire bottle of Campari to occasional home use, so I just floated a star anise.  A little more infusion time may have been betetr, but it was a good drink anyway.  Conveniently, 20 star anise in 750ml is near enough to one in 30ml (1oz).

A bit too sweet, I think. Still very nice. Will try slightly different proportions at a later time.
