La Bella Italiana

Sipster Pierre Bovis (who happens to be my dad) is a lover of the drink. (I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!)

Born and raised in Beaulieu Sur Mer, France, he enjoys the boozy bounty the Mediterranean coast has to offer. When spending time in Beaulieu, we often make the half-hour drive into “bella Italia.” Below is my dad’s recipe using my all-time favorite summer spirit, Campari.

La Bella Italiana

2 oz. Campari
1/2 oz. Mandarin (or Orange) flavored Syrup

Shake Campari and Mandarin Syrup in a cocktail shaker to chill. Pour into a champagne flute or rocks glass. Top with champagne.
