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

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.

enjoyed, and as a Campari fan, i found this to be well balanced...
