1/2 oz Sugar
Cut lime into eights. Muddle lime wedges and sugar in a rocks glass until most of the sugar is dissolved. Add Campari and stir. Fill with crushed ice and stir again. A lime wedge or wheel garnish might make a good addition.
Last Tuesday, I was flipping through the Big Bartender's Book and spotted the Camparinha. I found this recipe quite quirky and intriguing for it took the classic Caipirinha and subbed out the cachaça for Campari. After enjoying the Campari and lime-containing Teresa, I was definitely curious in giving this recipe a go. Clearly, the recipe is not a new one (despite the modern trend of swapping out spirits for amaros like the Anvil Bar's Campari Alexander) for I was able to find it published as long ago as 2002, but alas, that is the most I could discover about its origins.
