what do you already have on hand?

if you're going to make a drink with campari and were going to go out and grab a bottle, I think you should sub cappelletti americano rosso which is made with a wine as opposed to a spirit base, and is much tastier (as well as cheaper!)

oh, and make sure to refrigerate any vermouth/aperitivi once they are opened!

I would grab a bottle of gin, rittenhouse rye, cappelletti (or campari), sweet & dry vermouth (dolin is a solid choice)

then you could make spritzes, negronis, martinis, manhattans, boulevardiers...

and if you pick up a bottle of cocchi americano or suze you could combine that with gin + dolin blanc to make a white negroni

1 1/2 ounce gin (recommended: a London dry like Beefeater)
1 ounce Dolin Blanc vermouth
1/2 ounce Cocchi Americano (sub Suze if desired)
lemon twist, for garnish

I vote Jungle Bird. You have two great ideas already and this would be a lighter third option. And yeah I’d like to try one with cappelletti instead of Campari.

Or A simple Paloma if you’re set on mezcal. Nice sippable Collins format before all those stirreds

Sort of a spontaneous thing. Sidracca cider, Amaro CioCiaro, lemon juice. Very good. Not my pool

Bad photo but good drink. A slight variation on something I saw in Sother Teague’s new book, what I think he called the Garden Fizz - muddled mint and simple, lime, gin, Amaro CioCiaro, celery bitter, cucumber bitters, top with soda.

The retro rat-pack era Collins glass is turned because it has some family ID info on it. Got a set years back from my grandfather.

This is a wacky one from Sother’s book and i only did it because I had all the ingredients. Whip shake the following

1.5 oz gin
.5 oz fernet
2 oz. softened mint chip ice cream

He calls for just sipping it out of the shaker but I couldn’t help the glass and topping with a bourbon cherry
