Americano in 6 Simple Steps

Negroni Week has come to an end, now what to do with all the left over Campari?

The Americano is the perfect low alcoholic cocktail to make use of that spare bottle of luminescent Campari bottle left on the spirit shelf. If you’re not a Campari fan then it’s probably good advice to steer clear as it’s quite a bitter drink – although the addition of soda water downplays the bitterness (when comparing it to a Negroni).

A popular Italian drink going back as far as 1860.
