C. C. (Campari Champagne)
1 to 1 1/4 oz. Campari
Pour Campari into a Champagne flute. Fill with Champagne and twist lemon peel over drink.
Gruet sparkling white wine. This is characteristically bitter, and could possibly benefit from a little less Campari. After a few swallows, Zach was kind enough to top my flute off with a bit more sparkling wine, which was an improvement. Over all, this was musky, fizzy, and a little grapefruity. I think this would be quite good if I was in the mood for bitter, which I sometimes am.
