This was a favourite of Nancy Carten’s, the original owner of the Kensington Wine Market (KWM) in Calgary. I worked at KWM for six years and forged many long-lasting friendships there. This cocktail is a go-to of mine, but I wish I knew why it has such a bitter name! There is nothing bitter about it, it’s very refreshing due to all the citrus elements. (I love anything with Limoncello in it!)


2 oz cup vodka

1 oz Campari

1 oz Limoncello

2 oz fresh orange juice

1 slice of lime



Fill cocktail shaker with ice.

Add the vodka, Campari and limoncello.

Shake. Strain into a martini glass.

Top with orange juice and garnish with a slice of lime.
