1. Campari – be a little different

    If you like to be a little different, you may enjoy Campari.

    The slightly-bitter red spirit has been in and out of vogue since

     it was invented in Novara, Italy in 1860. Campari is an infusion of herbs and fruit

     – and it is definitely distinctive.  The first time you taste it you may find it bitter,

    but it grows on you.


    You may think of it as a summer drink. It is an essential ingredient

    for famous summer cocktails the Americano and a Napolitano

     – and of course a classic Campari and soda with a wedge of orange.

     It is perfect for the holidays with its bright colour and refreshing taste.

    I like it with a splash of sweet red raspberry liqueur and topped with sparkling Prosecco.


    Campari makes a lovely gift for any host with a taste for art and Americanos.

    They will love Campari’s new limited-edition art labels. Each one features

     an iconic sketch by Italian futurist artist Fortunato Depero,

     “reimagined with the use of contemporary colors”.

    The limited-edition bottles are available now for the holidays!
