Americano Cocktail Recipe
A very refreshing cocktail for weary palates.
- Shake or stir with ice, and serve with ice.
- If you are preparing just one or two, you can just stir together right in your tumbler or old-fashioned glass.
- Variant 1: top up with soda water and add a slice of lemon.
- Variant 2: add a splash of French vermouth as well as the Italian. The proportions would be roughly 3/6 Italian vermouth, 1/6 French vermouth, 2/6 Campari.
Don't worry about using an expensive vermouth for this; an inexpensive one will work just as well.
