Campari and beer? It may seem like an odd combination, but as Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress in New York City has proven, it can work. It's a fantastic mix and a nice change from the typical Campari cocktail.

Wiznitzer's Cold in the Shadows cocktail pairs the bitter aperitif with fresh lime and a little honey syrup, along with the delectable raspberry liqueur from St. George Spritis. After shaking all of that just a few times, a great California craft beer is added and the mix is served over crushed ice.

This recipe is a nice way to get your beer and aperitif in a single glass and it's a fun drink to share at casual dinners, particularly those that involve a barbecue.


  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce
  • honey syrup (1:1 ratio of honey to water)
  • 1/2 ounce St. George Raspberry Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 ounces Anderson Valley IPA
  •  Garnish: orange and lime slices

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients except for the IPA in a cocktail shaker.

  3. Whip shake (shake just a few times) and add the beer to the tin.

  4. Strain the drink into the glass.

  5. Garnish with slices of orange and lime and a straw.
