Bittersweet Cocktail

1/4 cup Campari
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sweet vermouth
1/2 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon rose water (optional)
~ superfine sugar (optional)
~ blood orange slices for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients (except the superfine sugar and the orange slices) in a measuring cup, stir to mix, then divide into glasses filled with ice before garnishing with the orange slices.
  2. Make sugar rims on your martini glasses by running a lemon wedge around the rim of the glasses, then swirling the moistened edges in a saucer of superfine sugar. Place all the remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake, then strain into the glasses. Garnish with orange slices.
