Speranza Cocktail: Not Too Sweet For Dad!

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

One might not want to use the verb “pamper” for Pop on Father’s Day. He might conjure up a bunch of dirty diapers in his head. Rather, how about a special, not too sweet, cocktail surprise for dear ole dad? The Speranza should do the trick: smooth vermouth, heathful and slightly bitter Campari and of course, vodka, vodka, vodka!



3/4 ounce Cinzano Bianco Vermouth

3/4 ounce Campari

1/2 ounce SKYY Vodka

Orange wedge for garnish



Pour ingredients in an old-fashioned glass filled with ice.

Garnish with an orange wedge. Serve to Dad!
