Campari Spritz

In Speakeasy, Jason Kosmas and Dushan Zaric of Employees Only say that Campari Spritz is the predecessor of the popular Aperol Spritz: "Whereas the Aperol version is soft, the Campari version is bold and assertive."

It's served with a green olive, which is a surprisingly delicious partner for the tangy, slightly bitter cocktail. Consider serving these with a pre-dinner spread that includes cheeses, charcuterie, olives, and pickles.
