Spotted in the hotel minibar in Italy: CampariSoda, a bottled cocktail of Campari and soda that requires nothing more than a bottle opener to access and enjoy.
The tiny, narrow, and slightly conic bottle is still the original, as designed by futurist painter and sculptor Fortunato Depero back in 1932. The single serving is only 3.3 ounces and has 10 percent alcohol by volume. It tasted just as one would hope: like Campari and soda. Unfortunately, it’s available only in Italy, home of Campari.
