Description

This cocktail is made with Campari, Tequila, and homemade orange blossom syrup with almond and vanilla extracts. It's perfectly balanced between bitter and sweet, and it's not overly strong so it's the perfect afternoon cocktail!


Ingredients

Scale

Orange Blossom Almond Simple Syrup

  • ½ water
  • ½ cup cane sugar (or another sweetener)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp orange blossom water

Campari Cocktail:

  • 1 ½ oz reposado tequila
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1/2-1 oz orange blossom almond simple syrup
  • Ice

Instructions

Orange Blossom Almond Simple Syrup

  1. Add the water and sugar to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. It doesn’t have to boil or simmer, you just need to let the sugar dissolve. 
  2. Take off the heat and add vanilla extract, almond extract, and orange blossom water.
  3. Let cool down completely before storing. Store in an airtight container like a glass jar in the fridge for up to two weeks. To extend the shelf life, add ½ oz vodka.

Campari Cocktail

  1. Fill a tall glass with ice and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker or a mason jar with a handful of ice, close, and shake for 10-15 minutes until mixed and very cool. 
  3. Strain into prepared glass with ice. 
  4. Garnish with grapefruit twist or dried grapefruit slice if desired. Serve immediately.

Notes

Storing: The syrup can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for two weeks.
