Like the original Lavorato Secco served at Milan's Camparino bar, this is bittersweet, herbal, and superbly palate cleansing. The cocktail in the photograph is made using my precious old bottle of Zucca Herboris Amaro Centerbe but as this is near impossible to obtain perhaps substitute with equal parts Centerba Esprit Potabile liqueur and Cynar (a blend not as dry and bitter as Herboris Amaro Centerbe). I double carbonate (WARNING – can be dangerous!) my soda siphon to replicate the effect of the bar's seltzer gun.
Adapted from a famous cocktail served at the Camparino Bar in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, Milan, Italy. The original is made with equal parts Rabarbaro Zucca, Campari, and Zucca Herboris Amaro Centerbe, an ingredient made by Zucca exclusively for Camparino Bar. These first three ingredients are charged with a jet of seltzer water squirted into the glass using a special soda gun. This invigorates the cocktail in a way that soda water simply poured from a bottle doesn't.
