Margaritas and mojitos may dominate the summer cocktail landscape, but when you’re looking for something a bit more continental, the Negroni is your move. Made with Campari—a bitter-sweet red liqueur that’s been around since the 1860s—the Negroni is an Italian cocktail that’s best enjoyed while lounging on a scenic, sun-dappled veranda in a linen suit. If you can squeeze a ride on a Vespa and La Dolce Vita in there, then all the better.
There are also two more drinks you can make with Campari that are both simple and refreshing. The Campari Soda is self-explanatory: Pour 3 ounces Campari into an ice-filled Collins glass and top off with soda; garnish with slice of lemon or orange. In Italy, you can buy these premixed in little bottles. An Americano is the same, except you replace half the Campari with sweet vermouth.
