Campari Spritz

Updated: Apr 19

Italians love a bitter flavored aperitivo. Why, you ask? Some research says that bitter flavors stimulate the appetite, while it's also known that certain bitter ingredients can aid in digestion. We may not know for sure why most aperitivi (plural) include a little burst of bitter in them, but what we do know is that the Italians are experts when it comes to pairing flavors in food and drink. So bring on the Campari!
