1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz lime juice
Seltzer
Dash orange bitters

Combine in all ingredients in a colins glass, stir, add ice and top with seltzer and a lime wedge.

Ginger-ito

After a long hot weekend, what winds it down better than a nice cocktail? This a ginger take on a mojito. I had some citrus white rum so I used that – regular white rum or dark rum would work great too!

Ingredients:
2 oz domain canton (ginger liquor)
1 oz white run
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 lime thinly sliced
Mint leaves

In a collins glass, combine all ingredients, muddle, add ice and top with club soda.

Serves 1.
