Though Friday nights at our house used to mean Indian food, they're more likely to be Italian-themed evenings these days. We've been pairing pizza and pasta with our favorite three-ingredient low-alcohol cocktail, the Americano!
1 1/2 oz Campari
1 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
Fill a highball glass with ice, add Campari and sweet vermouth. Top with club soda and garnish with an orange wedge.
Notes: I adore Carpano Antica in this and any other cocktail that includes sweet vermouth, but Dolin Rouge is a sublime springtime substitution. Pair an Americano with some salty snacks and you'll have one fabulous Friday night–cheers, and happy April!
