I got myself a bottle of Campari, but I'm not exactly sure what to do with it besides make Negronis, which I found a little sweet for my tastes (I'll have to use more gin next time). I kind of like it on the rocks, but again, it's too sweet. Does anyone have any good ideas for this liqueur besides the classic Negroni and Americano? I do like its flavor, but I feel like the flavor and sugar content is high enough that you wouldn't need much to flavor a cocktail, even though the recipes on Campari's website call for a large proportion of Campari.
I'm currently in the process of making my own coffee liqueur, and it seems like a pretty neat thing to play around with. Is there a good ratio to work with (spirit to sugar to water) when I do this?
I do enjoy drinking Jameson neat, but sometimes I'm not really in the mood for that. When I try making drinks that call for whiskey, and not specifically Irish whiskey, the whiskey doesn't seem to come through very well. Any suggestions on drinks that showcase the qualities of Irish whiskeys well?
