Campari & Soda


Highball Glass

Glass Guide- Highball Glass

The Campari and Soda is a great aperitif that displays the bitter Campari without any outside flavor influences. Along with Campari on the rocks, this simple soda addition is one of the signature ways to serve the Italian spirit. The lovely part about this simple recipe is that you get to taste the full flavor of Campari in a tall, refreshing form. Again, Campari is a distinct bitter and not everyone is going to enjoy it right away, but sometimes with such bold flavors it is a matter of training your palate to enjoy it. If you prefer something a touch sweeter, try substituting ginger ale for the soda.



  1. Pour the Campari into a highball glass filled with ice.
  2. Top with soda water.
  3. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge.
