Campari never tasted this delicious! My Pink Fizz cocktail is the perfect combination of flavours and texture – it’s the most delicious hit of sweet and sour and a cinch to shake up at home…

This Campari cocktail is a new spin on Italy's favourite aperitif. I'm a long-standing member of the negroni club, but always have one eye open for a new Campari cocktail that I might not have tried - The Boulevardier, the Lucien Gaudin, Campari Spritz and delightful Sculaccioni are all on rotation but there's another that is actually our household's most guzzled mix: The Pink Fizz!

My husband, Brendan came up with this Campari cocktail in 2015 ish and we've been drinking it ever since. We placeholder named this treasure the Pink Fizz and never really got 'round to giving it an official title, so Pink Fizz it is! It's so fruity, sour and refreshing! It's an egg white cocktail, so has a wonderfully fluffy foam on top - a luxurious and splendid addition.

What's in a Campari Pink Fizz?

It's a pretty simple recipe: here's what you need to get hold of to shake up your own at home.

  1. Campari (or a similar Italian amaro)
  2. Gin
  3. Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  4. Simple syrup
  5. Egg white
  6. Ice
  7. Aromatic Bitters

Tips for egg white cocktails

Part of the appeal of this Campari cocktail the fluffy egg white foam on top. If you're new to an egg white cocktail, it's something special! I use packaged egg whites for convenience, but obviously you can crack an egg and use fresh. The egg white forms a fluffy foam on top which takes all the flavour of the other ingredients - You'll be mopping the sides of the glass with your finger to get the last scrap - trust me!

To get the best, dense 'cocktailcino' foam, there's a simple trick to follow.

  1. Add a shot of room temperature water to your cocktail ingredients. Don't add any ice at this stage as it will inhibit the proteins in the egg white.
  2. Shake up the cocktail - a foam will form.
  3. Add a few cubes of ice to the shaker and shake again - the foam will become dense and stable
  4. Pour into your glass over a few more ice cubes
  5. Bitters are the perfect final flourish - we drip a few Aromatic bitter dots on top just as we're serving.

The Campari Pink Fizz has become a staple in our household, with every visitor requesting it over and over. It's shameful just how much Campari we go through! So, if you're looking for a new take on a Classic Italian aperitif, then shake up a Pink Fizz next time.
