Squid Mixes: Campari Soda
The bright red color is produced artificially. Until 2006, carmine, a dye made from crushed insects, was used. Now, the dye is synthetic.
My wife is a Campari fan. She especially likes Negronis. The Campari soda made for a fine summer drink and was awfully pretty. It looked especially nice in our cobalt blue glasses but alas, that was more difficult to capture photographically. My recipe comes from The New York Bartender's Guide.
