Many cocktails are so boozy that by the time dinner rolls around, you’re toast. Instead, this low-ABV sparkler is not only light on alcohol content, the herbs in Campari are said to prepare the stomach for eating. (Read: prepping for big holiday meals.) Orange juice balances out the bitter notes, while the strip of orange zest mirrors it, but if that’s too much, you can opt for an sweeter orange slice instead. This recipe calls for a generous pour of soda water, so if you like the taste of Campari, start with a ½ cup and adjust to taste from there.
