Author Notes

A classic Italian aperitivo, the Garibaldi is also known as simply Campari-Orange. Some classic recipes call for a 1:1 ratio of Campari to orange juice, but it's a bit intense. A little less Campari and a little more orange juice (approximately 1:3) leads to a decidedly classier and sweeter drink. Plenty of ice is key, and if you want to garnish, go for a slice of orange -- blood orange, if it's in season, which creates a nice orange-red ombré. —Emiko

    Yep, but definitely benefits from a splash of gin. This is like a lighter version of a Negroni. And don't forget to add a twist of orange peel to the glass. Twisting the peel releases the orange oil. Delicious!

    I like to use Pink Grapefruit, freshly squeezed, instead of orange juice.

    I like to add an ounce of gin to the ounce of campari and 3 ounces OJ. On the rocks, it's a very refreshing cocktail!
