Author Notes: I had this drink at a bar in Rome -- it was basically a Campari and orange, only with blood orange juice, and at the bottom of the cup was a spoonful or so of demerara sugar that crunched between my teeth, flooding my tongue with sweetness as I sucked up the fruity, slightly bitter drink through a straw.Merrill Stubbs

Campari was my first drink in college and remains a favorite. I adore bitter flavours.
This is an interesting aperitif with the demerara sugar as a texture teaser.
