The best way to shake things up.

CAMPARI SHAKEN

New York, around 1872. Campari and the shaker (patented in the Big Apple in that year) were invented at almost the same time and soon became a twosome. Perhaps this is why together they create something special.

Some masterpieces are not made for museums.

ROSA BIANCA

Turin, 1931. It is said that this drink got its name from one of its original components, a spirit scented with white rose (“rosa bianca” in Italian). It was created in the restaurant where members of the Futurist art movement used to meet, becoming one of their official drinks.

The best mistake ever made.

NEGRONI SBAGLIATO

Milan, 1972. A bartender in the Bar Basso was asked to make a Negroni but used sparkling wine instead of gin. This mistake (“sbagliato” is Italian for “wrong”) gave rise to a great success.

CAMPARI ORANGE PASSION

Some charms strike harder than the others.

CAMPARI OLD PAL

USA, around 1922. This is the Stars and Stripes version of the Negroni. It uses the characteristic American spirit – rye whiskey- instead of gin and became famous in the 50s. It is both strong and fascinating, like its most famous admirers, the male stars of Hollywood of the time.
