Americano Highball

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces Sweet Vermouth
  • 1.5 ounces Campari
  • Soda Water
  • Flamed Orange Peel (Garnish)

Pour the vermouth and Campari into an ice-filled highball glass and top with soda water. Garnish with the flamed orange peel.

This cocktail was bottled and sold around the world by Martini & Rossi in the 1890s. Note that most apéritif, sherry, and vermouth drinks should be served in stemware, but the Americano Highball should obviously be in a highball glass.
