Vodka, Campari and Orange Cocktail

This sparkling coral-pink cocktail is a delicious pre-dinner aperitif. It features the classic crimson-hued Italian liqueur mixed with orange and pomegranate juices topped with sparkling soda.
A Venetian Blush makes an eye-catching pretty cocktail for Holiday dinners, festive brunches, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day but it's also a thirst-quenching summer drink that's not too sweet.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 2 ounces orange juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce pomegranate juice
  • 5 ounces Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa  1/2 can approximately

Instructions

  • Fill a double old-fashioned, stemless wine glass or specialty cocktail glass with ice cubes made with filtered water.
  • Pour in the vodka and Campari.
  • Squeeze the fresh oranges to make orange juice. Add the pomegranate and orange juices to the glass. Stir gently.
  • Top with enough chilled San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa sparkling soda to fill the glass.
  • Garnish with an orange peel. Citrus peels are full of aromatic oils, which add depth and nuance. All you really need to finish this cocktail is a piece of peel to add some aromatic oil to its surface.

Notes

  • Serve this aperitif 30 to 60 minutes before dinner to stimulate the appetite, open the palate and aid digestion. 
  • To make a large batch, mix the vodka, Campari orange and pomegranate juices in a pitcher up to one day in advance. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Add ice and sparkling soda to the pitcher just before serving.
