Campari is my desert island liquor. We are pretty into cocktails around here and have a relatively well-stocked bar but all I need, truly, is Campari (although gin would be nice, too). While it's my cocktail go-to, I've never thought to do much else with the bitter, vibrant red liquor. Until now.
Tracy Benjamin recently featured Cantaloupe Campari posicles on her blog Shutterbean that got me pretty excited to break out the bottle for something other than a Negroni. Her recipe features three simple ingredients: cantaloupe pureed in the blender with a little simple syrup. And Campari, of course. The result is a striking and refreshing orange popsicle with a little kick. I'm sold.

Do you have a favorite way to use Campari other than in cocktails?
