[this is good] Hear hear. Gotta get some of the Vya.

Should you branch out, Campari plays very nicely with Martin Miller gin in a Negroni.


[this is good] Totally with you on this.  I've also taken to making it in a tall glass and pouring more than a splash of club soda.  It's an Americano soda.  Really good.


Before you put the orange slice in, try cutting off a circle of just the peel from the orange (just a simple flat cut). Hold the circle flat over your glass, pitch side up, and squeeze gently so that the orange oils end up in the glass. You can see them if you look carefully at the surface of your drink.

Then, glide the orange peel around the rim of the glass so that you get the oils all over the rim (so you get the smell when you sip). This is how my bartender friend taught me to add aroma to cocktails.


"Vox Recommends" has really hit it's stride with this post.

Salma Hayek is the one celebrity Adriana allows me to openly pine for, and I think that's probably true for most wives/girlfriends. She's undeniable!


Those are great tips! The other thing I like doing, from time to time, is flaming an orange peel into the drink (or other such drinks), which really works well with the bitterness of the Campari.


[this is good] Sbagliatto Campari and sweet Vya vermouth yes!


Sounds tasty. I haven't tried this, but I do enjoy Negronis a great deal (one part gin, one part Campari, one part sweet vermouth).
