Try it with sparkling wine in Nick’s Sparkling Campari Cocktail. Game plan: These bitters will last up to 1 month when refrigerated in an airtight container.

                                                                  • Yes No 1 medium grapefruit

                                                                  • Yes No 1/2 cup water
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup campari
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup vodka
                                                                  • Yes No 3/4 cup sweet vermouth
                                                                  • Halve the grapefruit. Juice one half, reserve the juice, and discard the rind. Coarsely chop the remaining half (pulp and rind) and reserve.
                                                                  • Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves, and let syrup simmer until it thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add chopped grapefruit and cook until the grapefruit releases all its juice, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
                                                                  • Combine cooled grapefruit syrup (including chopped fruit), reserved grapefruit juice, Campari, vodka, and sweet vermouth in a large container with a tightfitting lid. Stir well, cover, and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.
