Americano (Revisited)

After opening my Carpano Antica and buying a bottle of Campari, I felt I needed to remake the Americano. It's just that certain drinks will be different when you use a bitter sweet vermouth with so much character. You get the sense that you are having the drink as it was originally recommended. I imagine that I will remake Negronis, Manhattans, Rob Roys and other vermouth dependent cocktails soon as well.

As for this drink, it is stronger than it looks with plenty of bitterness from Campari. But it is a soda drink and as so remains refreshing till the end.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Campari
  • 1 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • club soda
  • lemon peel
Build drink in a highball glass with Campari and sweet vermouth. Add ice and top with soda. Stir gently and garnish with the lemon peel twist.
