- Base Spirit Campari
- Preparation Mixed
- Flavor Bitter & Fruity
- Served On the Rocks
A refreshing twist on the Italian standard, Campari and Soda, made sweeter with a house-made strawberry and blackberry simple syrup using wild blackberries. This sunset-hued drink is a perfect cocktail hour aperitif–low ABV, light bodied, and bubbly!
