Spicy Campari Cocktail

Celebrate Citrus in a Cocktail Glass

Is there a half-full bottle of Campari lurking on your bar cart? The obvious "solution" would be to cut it with sparkling wine and water for a Campari spritzer or to swirl it together with an equal dose of sweet vermouth and gin for a spiritous and satisfying negroni. But if you're looking for an option that's a bit different, this spicy, sour, and bittersweet cocktail is for you. Sophisticated, not too sweet, but not too strong either, it's quite the crowd-pleaser, provided your crowd likes things hot (the jalapeño gives it substantial kick).
