Who thought that you would see hip twenty somethings ordering such classics as the Negroni or Manhattan as popular summer drinks? Welcome to the resurgence of the cocktail ladies and gents. The fad started with the cosmo, until people were introduced to her stiffer and older Italian cousin. Enjoy this on a terrace before dipping into a Brunello di Montalcino and a pizza al formaggio.

1 ounce gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 ounce campari
Slice of orange

Pour gin, vermouth and campari into a chilled old fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
