Clementine Campari Cocktail

The Clementine Campari Cocktail is a Christmassy twist on the classic Garibaldi – or Campari Orange Juice – cocktail, with clementine juice instead of orange. A bit sweeter and less acidic than oranges, the clementines complement the Campari perfectly, allowing it to shine while providing the perfect amount of sweetness. If bittersweet is your thing – then this is the cocktail for you!

Looking to use up a spicy bottle of red? Christmas Sangria is a hit every time.

We’ve come to the fourth and final installment of the always use butter 2018 Christmas Cocktails. But despair not – I’m back next week with a special New Year’s Eve cocktail for you. How have you liked the cocktails? I’ve heard the Christmas Sangria has been a hit among those who’ve made it, the Cranberry Champagne Cocktail got all my friends delightfully buzzed for Thanksgiving and I’m serving the non-alcoholic Sober Santa Christmas Punch for Christmas Brunch this year.

This Clementine Campari Cocktail is a twist on an old favorite of mine – the Garibaldi Cocktail, maybe more commonly known as plain Campari Orange Juice. Campari & Juice was a big thing in Sweden in the 80’s, but for me it hit its prime two years ago when I spent the Holidays in Argentina. Apparently Campari is all the rage there!

Anyway, clementines are a bit sweeter than oranges and not as acidic, the flavor is all in all so much more mellow than that of oranges. This is why I love to pair clementines with Campari! I love the bitterness of Campari & feel a Campari Orange Juice can sometimes taste a bit much like, well, juice? Sometimes that’s just what you want of course – but when you’re after a bit more bittersweetness then this Clementine Campari Cocktail is the perfect choice.

Oh and best of all? It contains only two ingredients! Now how’s that for a simple cocktail?!
