Asolano cocktail recipe

In its purest form, this Italian party drink is a shot of Campari topped up by about three times that amount of Prosecco. To avoid getting drunk too quickly, dilute with a splash of blood orange or pink grapefruit juice and fizzy water.

Makes 8 small glasses

  • 100ml Campari
  • plenty of ice
  • 200ml freshly squeezed blood orange or pink grapefruit juice
  • 600ml Prosecco
  • 300ml fizzy water

Pour the Campari into a jug of ice and mix in the orange or grapefruit juice. Add the Prosecco and fizzy water and stir to combine.

Pour into glasses and serve.
