An Italian classic with only two ingredients, the Garibaldi Cocktail tastes much more intricate than it actually is. Sweet and tangy orange juice and uniquely bitter Campari collide to create a balanced combination that you must cross off your cocktail bucket list!

The name of the drink comes from Giuseppe Garibaldi, the general who helped unify Italy in the 1800s. Equal parts orange juice and Campari originally composed the drink, while more recently the ratio of orange juice has been increased to make the drink more refreshing and easier on the palate.

Garibaldi Cocktail Ingredients

A cocktail recipe doesn’t get much simpler than only demanding two ingredients and no shaker required! The ingredients needed are:

  • Campari
  • Orange Juice

While not to overcomplicate things, it is valuable to use freshly squeezed orange juice if available. Looking for other mixed drinks that include Campari? Try the Americano or Negroni.

How to Make a Campari Orange

Combining the Campari and orange juice in a glass over ice followed by a gentle stir is all it takes to whip up a Campari Orange!

Want to mix it up? Grab your blender or milk frother! Blend freshly squeezed orange juice at high speeds (without ice) to aerate it, creating a thick and fluffy texture like they do at the famous New York City bar, Dante.

How to Serve

A Campari Orange is best served over ice in a high ball glass. An orange slice makes the perfect garnish for the drink.
