The drink is made with equal parts Campari, a bitter aperitif that’s bright red in color, and sweet vermouth, plus a pour of club soda. The latter makes the Americano easier to drink than its punchier (and more alcoholic) cousin, the Negroni. This version includes a touch of maraschino cherry juice to balance out the drink's flavors. Ingredients 2 tbsp Campari 2 tbsp sweet vermouth 4-6 tbsp club soda 1 tsp. maraschino cherry juice Orange slice and/or cherry, for garnish Directions Fill a glass halfway with ice. Add the Campari, sweet vermouth, club soda, and maraschino cherry juice. Stir to combine. Add an orange slice and/or cherry directly to the drink.
