Raise a Garibaldi in Honor of Garibaldi

Today’s the 150 anniversary of the unification of Italy! If you want to read what Barak (Obama, that is) proclaimed in his proclamation, then go here. But if you want to celebrate while you read it, then you should be making yourself a Garibaldi, named after Giuseppe Garibadli, the man whose “red-shirt army” (the drink reflects the colors of the shirt) unified the country I’m lucky enough to be living in currently. Here’s the recipe (straight outta Good Spirits) so you can get you Italian unification day on in style.

Ice cubes
2 ounces Campari
5 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice

1. Fill a highball or comparable glass with ice cubes. Add the Campari. Salute.

2. Add the orange juice. Stir. Drink, Italian style.
