Improved recipe to specify the amount of soda (equal parts of all ingredients). Added a reference to the Campari website.

I love this made with Gran Classico and Carpano Antica

From other users

Bracingly bitter and refreshing, makes an excellent aperitif. Do not use too big a glass or stir too much that it gets watered down. (4 stars)
