Salt House, a great urban tavern in San Francisco, sometimes serves a cocktail called the Bitter Widow (really just a Negroni, with vodka standing in for the gin). It tastes great, and with its festive color and suitableness for mixing in large batches it’s a shoo-in for a cocktail party. Keep it in pitchers for your guests to pour over ice.

Game plan: The Campari, vermouth, and vodka can be combined ahead of time and kept covered in the refrigerator. Pour over ice and garnish to serve.

This recipe was featured as part of our Nibbles and Sips menu.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the Campari, vermouth, and vodka in a cocktail shaker and stir.
  2. 2Pour over ice into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist, if desired.
