Author Notes: We stumbled upon this refreshing drink earlier this summer, when we were cooking at home on a night off and were desperate for a cold beer. But the baby was in bed and we didn’t want to go anywhere, and all we had on hand was a couple of long-ignored cans of Bitburger from a camping trip that Brandon took with his dad and uncle two summers ago. It was beer, technically, and it was, in fact, cold. But it wasn’t particularly great, so Brandon decided to try something: he added a healthy splash of Campari, the bright red Italian aperitivo, and dropped in a wedge of lime. And boom, we had our Summer Drink of 2013.MollyandBrandon

Serves 1

  • 2 ounces Campari
  • 12 ounces light-colored beer, such as Pabst Blue Ribbon, Corona, or Blanche de Bruxelles
  • 1 juicy lime wedge
  1. Pour the Campari into a chilled glass. Add the beer, and stir briefly to mix. Squeeze the lime wedge into the glass, and then drop the wedge in. Serve immediately.

I have never seen this before, but it seems like a good idea to try!

This a great recipe. It is wonderful to find a Campari cocktail for summer that does NOT call for red grapefruit juice. While I love grapefruit, many people taking medications must avoid grapefruit. I feel it would be rude to inquire, so this solves the problem in a most delicious way. Thank you!

It´s winter in my country and the drink looks very summery , but for me always is a good time to drink Campari. I will do it soon!
