    Watched a show last week and they were making old drinks and they mentioned something called a Negroni???

    A mix of Bombay Sapphire gin, sweet vermouth, and something called Campari?? Anyone ever heard of Campari? My local ABC store didn't have a clue?

    It appears NC ABC might graciously allow us to purchase it from them.

    I seem to remember it as a ladies drink for the most part.

    It’s vile stuff, I remember it when I lived in the UK in the late 1970’s. Yes popular with girls.

    Campari was huge in Brazil in the 70s. I didn't care for it, was kind of bitter if I recall. I was only a teen so...

    I only had a bottle on my shelf for the old Italian, off the boat guys... They sip on a shot of it with their espresso... I find it repulsive. Tastes like the worst cough syrup you had as a kid...
