Men are from Mars…
I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t got the foggiest when it comes to understanding women. I mean apparently they are from Venus and all I remember from school is that Venus is the second closest planet to the sun and it rotates in the opposite direction to most other planets, as a simple man from Mars, (apparently), for all I know Venus is rotating in the right direction and I’m doing everything wrong. Again.
So what does this have to do with our cocktail of the month I hear you say, well this month we are using Campari, an aperitif as mysterious to people around the world as women are to me. In fact so little is known about Campari that outside of the few people that make it, all anyone knows about it’s ingredients are that it contains alcohol and water, which is crazy when you think about it. People have tried to work out the ingredients but the amount of ingredients range from 20 to 80. Whatever it contains, it is blended together to make something magical. Just like when I make a mess at home and I come back to find the missus in a pristine house. Magical. Albeit she is looking at me, “mysteriously”.
Ice ice baby…..
This month we have mixed together the curious taste of Camapri with watermelon liqueur, gin, grenadine, cranberry juice and apple juice. All blended together, in an actual blender, with ice to create a fruity slushy that complements the taste of Campari.
To top this off we have decided to serve this cocktail in the only vessel worthy of Campari, a beautiful female glass that creates an ice cold woman in red.
