Inspired by The Orange Cocktail at San Francisco’s nopa, this cocktail is the perfect alternative to mimosas at brunch. Citrusy cocktails are my go-to this time of year — Not-Your-Grandfather’s Old Fashioned and The Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour are two of my old favorites — and this one’s definitely getting added to the rotation. A well-balanced combination of freshly squeezed orange juice, blanc vermouth and Campari makes for a refreshing sip with just enough of a bitter edge. Cheers!
