The unusual pairing of Campari with tequila may stop some of you in your tracks, but the combination works really well. The other ingredients mellow the Camapri's bitterness: it's still there, but it plays more of a backing role instead of muscling through all the other flavors (as it sometimes does in a Negroni).
In an iced mixing glass, combine:
- 1 1/2 ounces tequila
- 1/2 ounce Campari
- 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
- dash of Angostura bitters
If this is still too Campari-heavy for you, reduce the amount to 1/4 ounce and work your way up to a level of bitterness that works for you.
