1 oz Gin
12 oz Amaretto
12 oz Campari
12 oz Dry vermouth

Stir, strain, straight up, express zest and garnish with it
This amount of Campari could be too bitter for the uninitiated. I would like to try this drink with Aperol or Cynar.

Not an amaretto fan, and this

Not an amaretto fan, and this drink did nothing to change that. It is, however, a very nice Martini variant without the amaretto. I don't understand the appeal of the almond cookie flavor of amaretto with the bright citrus of Campari. I would think that Cynar would be a bit more harmonious. Made with Luxardo amaretto and Dolin dry.

Made it with Bombay Sapphire,

Made it with Bombay Sapphire, DisAronno and Cocchi Americano. Unbalanced. Probably better with a bolder gin, like Beefeater. Might need a milder vermouth, too.
