Campari and beer? It may seem like an odd combination, but as Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress in New York City has proven, it can work. It's a fantastic mix and a nice change from the typical Campari cocktail.
Wiznitzer's Cold in the Shadows cocktail pairs the bitter aperitif with fresh lime and a little honey syrup, along with the delectable raspberry liqueur from St. George Spritis. After shaking all of that just a few times, a great California craft beer is added and the mix is served over crushed ice.
This recipe is a nice way to get your beer and aperitif in a single glass and it's a fun drink to share at casual dinners, particularly those that involve a barbecue.
