You don't know what Campari is? Well, here is something to get you started on the way to becoming friends with it.

Fancy and time consuming - serve in a chilled cocktail glass (or martini glass)

1 1/2 ounces London dry gin
3/4 ounce Campari
3/4 ounce Italian vermouth

Shake well with cracked ice then carefully strain in to the glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Casual and quick (when I’m alone and need that drink badly, like today)
Fill a lowball glass tumbler with ice
Add a slice of orange
Top with equal parts of Campari, sweet vermouth and gin
