Campari vs. Cynar cocktail night -- drink suggestions?

sidecar | May 5, 201007:09 PM     6

I'm hosting a cocktail night at my place this weekend, and am looking to stage a Campari vs. Cynar showdown -- i.e., pairings of cocktails that have parallel ingredients and/or proportions, which would highlight the different qualities of these two amari with respect to each other. Most people on the guest list have little experience with either ingredient.

So far, I have...

Round 1: Negroni vs. Berlioni (per Oh Gosh! -- http://ohgo.sh/archive/amaro-cynar-ne...)

I've been utilizing the recent Cynar thread on this board for ideas, to great success. I would greatly appreciate any additional suggestions on interesting Campari / Cynar contrasts -- which would, ideally, be appealing to non-amari-accustomed palates.

Many thanks!
