Summer Drink: Cilantro Negroni

On hot day, a sweet drink isn't as refreshing as something a bit more tart or dry.  I really like the taste of Campari, a bitter orange aperitif.  In this drink, cilantro is muddled with some sugar and club soda gives the drink some fizz and dilutes the 21% alcohol content of the Campari.  Be generous with the cilantro, it is very subtle in this drink.

Muddle 3 cilantro sprigs with 1/2 teaspoon superfine sugar and 1 orange wedge in a glass.  Add 2 oz Campari and ice.  Add 4 oz club soda.  Stir.  Makes 1
