Roasted Peach & Campari Cocktail
2 medium ripe peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
1½ cups (375 ml) Campari
¼ cup (60 ml) sweet white vermouth
¼ cup (60 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tbsp (30 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tbsp (15 ml) syrup from Amarena cherries*
soda water and ice, to serve
4 Amarena cherries, for garnish*
- Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Slice each peach half into 4 pieces, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, pitted-sides up. Roast until lightly caramelized, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
- In a large glass container, combine Campari and roasted peaches. Cover and let peaches infuse into Campari for 4 to 6 hours at room temperature, or overnight in refrigerator. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a jug, reserving peaches.
- To infused Campari, add vermouth, lime juice, orange juice and cherry syrup. Stir well to combine. Divide between 4 ice-filled cocktail glasses. Add a peach slice to each glass, top with soda water and garnish with an Amarena cherry. Serve immediately.
