The Campari Cocktail is one of the best drinks featuring the distinctive Italian aperitif. It is perfect for serving at dinner parties as a nice introduction before the meal.

While Campari and bitters define this popular drink, it is important to choose your vodka wisely. Stick with the top-shelf vodkas that are nice and clean and you will have a great Campari Cocktail.

Campari does have a very particular and somewhat bitter taste that often catches people by surprise. However, with a little time and dedication you can develop a palate for it and it may just become a new favorite.

If a Campari-forward drink like this is too much, you may try easing into the taste with drinks like the Campari Cosmo, Fresh Squeeze, or Pink Campari.
