First of all, grab a martini glass and place it in your refrigerator until it gets chilled. Remember to put the glass carefully in the refrigerator as you do not want it to fall and break whenever you open or close the refrigerator door.
Meanwhile, take a cocktail shaker and fill it with crushed ice. However, you can replace a cocktail shaker with an electric blender if you do not a cocktail shaker in your home. The amount of ice that you use is entirely up to you as too much can make your entire cocktail mixture watery.
Now, gradually pour 3/4 oz vodka into your cocktail shaker and mix it with the ice. You can use any of your favourite vodka brands but it is better to use premium vodka, which is known for its quality and taste. If you want your cocktail to be light then you can always reduce the amount of vodka that you use for this mixture. This will not have a significant impact on the taste of the cocktail.
Pour in the 3/4 oz Campari into the vodka mixture and shake it vigorously until all ingredient mix properly. You will want a nice smooth texture to the mixture so be sure to check the consistency while shaking.
Take out the chilled martini glass from your refrigerator and pour the campari-vodka mixture into it. Be careful to not spill any of it on the table or floor.
Top your glass with chilled Champagne and serve immediately. You can garnish your glass with a lime or lemon wedges. It is entirely up to you as to how you want to serve this delicious cocktail to your friends and family. You can also use different items for garnishing as per your own taste.
