Campari Crush

The key to throwing a good party is to be a responsible hostess.  That means making sure everyone has a refreshment in hand.  Try this Campari Crush as your signature aperitif.  It’s a bitter-meets-sweet cocktail and the perfect palette cleanser to prep for a phenomenal meal.

Ingredients:

1 ½ oz. Campari

3 oz. freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice

2 oz. freshly-squeezed orange juice

1 tsp. organic clover honey

3 strawberries, hulled

Handful of ice

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until frothy consistency is achieved.  Garnish with half a strawberry and an orange disc.

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO:  Campari, a type of bitters, was believed that Campari had certain medicinal benefits such as a digestive aid when it was developed in 1867.  Although not all believe in the medicinal benefits, Campari is still traditionally served as an aperitif before a meal to ready the stomach.
