By the way it doesn`t taste so thin when using 2 sugar cubes...

Well of course I like it 5:1 but it`s up to you to try it 4:1 ...

I like my absinthe to be refreshing, that`s why I like a bit thinner.

FEH! The Campari.com website doesn't say what's in it.

Couldn't you use Grenadine instead of the sugar (as if Serpis needs sweetening)?

5:1? That's not kinda thin?

Sounds delightful overall, tho . . . will have to try when my order arrives. Well, after I try the Segarra.

So there it is, I'm trying a Campari-piss

1oz Serpis65
1/4 oz Campari
2 snooty sugar cubes previously wrapped in a "Leonardo da Vinci, Dame de la cour de Milan" fancy paper.
5:1 water ratio

It smells good for what it is and it louche the color of pink grapefruit juice.

It taste like...A better Serpis with less anis !

Hummm... Could it be that the recipe for Serpis and Campari are almost the same except for the anis ?

Every Serpis aficionados should try this drink...

I am VERY surprised by the result !
