Taste Tuesday- The Cocktail

I think you all know how much I love Campari. It could easily become a problem. Thankfully I also love wine and champagne which saves me from being on a perpetual Campari/soda bender. Unfortunately VosgesHautChocolate's campari/geranium/home made syrup concoction is threatening to push said problem over the edge. Check it out for yourself and tell me I'm not crazy!

Oh yeah and here's Katrinas recipe in case you finally stop watching on repeat and actually want to make the thing. (and join in my Campari obsession)

Strawberry Nectarine Geranium Cocktails
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa nibs
2 large strands with flowers of African blue basil
4 oz Campari
1 fresh nectarine
4 strawberries
4 large ice cubes
1 cup soda water
geranium petals

Make simple syrup by combining 1 part sugar to 1 part boiling water, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Infuse simple syrup with cocoa nibs, basil or experiment with your own herbal tincture! In a rocks glass, muddle fresh, juicy nectarines and strawberries. Add a splash of Campari, large ice cubes and top with soda water. Sprinkle organic geranium petals atop for garnish.

Thanks you so much to Cyd for sharing this from Peace Love and Chocolate!

P.S. Tell me you don't love her little finger happiness dance at the end when she loves the taste!


  1. You had me at the word cocktail! I am one of the few people I know who loves Campari-- espcecially in the summer. Thanks for the recipe! Sounds delicious! ***heads to store***

  2. What is wrong with me, and why have I never had Campari before?
