Default Anyone else like Campari?

Campari is an Italian alcohol invented back in about 1850. Anyways it is very bitter and has about 25% alcohol content and if I'm given a bottle it usually is gone within a couple of hours and gets me good and smashed. Now I had a couple friends try this stuff and they said it was the vilest crap they ever tasted and could not finish their drinks. I will grant that is very bitter (if anyone has tried the Italian soda - Chinotto, it kind of tastes like that but not sweet). It is very popular in Italy. Any other fans out there?

I enjoy it quite a bit mixed w/ club soda and a lime wedge.

It's a great beverage when doing blow.

Can you buy this at a local ABC store or is this something you have to import from Italy?

You can find it in about 50% of liquor stores where I live. Normally the higher end ones will have it as your skid row type liquor store will not sell much of this stuff. It's about 20 bucks a bottle. I normally drink it straight or with a bit of lime or orange juice with it.

How much club soda do you use....one part soda, one part Campari?

You could try a Negroni..

1 part Campari, 1 part Gin and 1 part Martini Rossi Rosso (vermouth).

I like it. Bitter drinks seem to be popular as aperitifs in Italy.
