You don't need to be a brilliant spy to know that the Americano is perfect before a meal or on a hot day outside a lovely cafe.



1-1/2 ounces Campari

1-1/2 ounces Sweet Vermouth

Splash of sparkling water

Orange slice


  1. Add one scoop of ice to an old fashion glass
  2. Pour in the Campari and vermouth, and stir to mix
  3. Add a splash of sparkling water
  4. Add orange garnish (or lemon, if you prefer)


Use a tall high-ball glass and add more sparkling water for a more refreshing cocktail
