After a week of graduation festivities I'm feeling a little worn out. I'm ready to kick off my shoes and relax with one of my favorite cocktails: the americano. It is light, refreshing, and a tad bitter. Just what I need after a hectic week in preparation for the long weekend. If you're in search of a cocktail this weekend this comes highly recommend. Plus, only four ingredients it doesn't take much thought to put one together.
Cocktails for Two: Americano
3 ounces campari
3 ounces sweet vermouth
sparkling water/club soda
Combine campari and sweet vermouth in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir until chilled. Pour into two low ball glasses filled with ice. Top with sparkling water or club soda until desired taste is reached. Garnish with a twisted lemon peel.
