Then decided the only thing to do was make my homemade Campari! How to make TRUE Campari is Top Secret info guarded by the Italian government-This is Lena Fay's best guess, and it's damn close and damn good.
1 wide mouth gallon jar with tight lid (pickle jars from Costco work great)
3 tangerines or oranges
2 lemons or grapefruit
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 a vanilla bean
2 1/2 bottles rose wine
1 c vodka
1/4 c rum
Chop your fruit wide and mix all that stuff together!
Shake that stuff! Don't ever think this is how I look. Once again, hungover and in glasses.
Now remember delayed gratification is the definition of maturity. Wait about 6 weeks. add rum then!
Things to do in the meantime? Practice your Italian flash cards that your sister's husband makes you!
How does one drink Compari one may ask?
Like this: It's called a Spritz
1/4 homemade Campari
So today is "little" Easter. I think I can wear those ears again.
