Tracy likes Campari and Dean likes St. Germain.  How to make everyone happy with the same recipe?  Scouring the internet and using some other recipes as inspiration, I came up with this recipe, which pleased everyone and is really delicious.  The St. Germain cuts the bitterness of the Campari, making it more friendly to a wide variety of palates.  It also seems to bring out a slight grapefruit flavor in the Campari, which was unexpected and distinctive, yet subtle.  Here’s the recipe, prepare to swoon.


2 parts gin, 1 part fresh lemon juice, 1 part Campari, 1 part St. Germain, 1 dash simple syrup, shake with ice, strain into cocktail glass, garnish with lime twist.
