More club soda than that...like a shot of Campari and the rest of the glass full of club soda...about the same proportion as a gin and tonic.

My dad's favorite drink is a Campari and soda. He recently introduced it to me, and I like it as well. I know of very few others who like it, though. I've been told it tastes like Alka-Selzer.

Most places seem to have it, the liqour store i used to work at had it in the back becasue no one shopped for it they would just ask. Like Frangelico

My roommates and I recently bought a bottle of grappa to try it out. Once we tasted it, we decided that there was no way we were going to drink it unless we somehow forced ourselves to, so we made a pact that any time the three of us were home for the night, we'd each finish a glass. Yuck.

I'm sure it wasn't the best grappa available, but I can't imagine the difference being large enough that I'd actually like others.

I need to dig in the basement for a parody I have of a Campari ad. After seeing that, I never wanted to try the stuff. If I find it, you'll see why.

Speaking of bitter Italian drinks, ever try Beverly? Made by Coca-Cola and always featured at their World of Coca-Cola exhibits, it's the only things that gets people to do universal spit-takes.

I used to hate grappa too. But I love it now. You have to spring for the good stuff though. Germain-robin has some fantastic bottlings and that's the only grappa I drink now.

I hated Campari for a long time too. But some drinks I love it in. The Negroni is good but try a Romanza:
1 part Campari
1 part Grand Mariner
3 parts grapefruit juice

(actually the original recipe calls for less juice than the liquors but I prefer it this way)

Celi,

I think I've only had this in Negronis, which I hate. My dad loves Campari.
