Campari & Orange Cocktail is an extremely easy drink to make that should appeal to those people who love the classic bitter beverage Campari. During the hot days of summer, Campari drinks are what most of the people crave. Campari is actually an Italian spirit that has a very distinct red colour and a bitter taste. You have to keep it in mind that there are some other Italian brands available in the market with more or less the same colour and the same taste as of Campari. However, we will not recommend you to buy any bitter other than Campari. Although the original Campari is a bit expensive than the rest of the competitor brands but it will provide you with the best quality that is worth the extra price that you pay. This recipe makes four drinks and this sun-soaked refresher is a great sipper for your upcoming party.
