If you haven't tried Compari, today is the day. It has a most unique taste and deliciously paired here with grapefruit, lemon and ginger. Campari is an Italian alcoholic liqueur, considered an apéritif, obtained from the infusion of herbs and fruit in alcohol and water. It is a bitter characterized by its dark red colour. Delicious!
