 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

Says Sunshine. Co's bartender Natasha David about this Campari cocktail: "We wanted this menu to reflect the vibe of Sunshine Co. — youthful, playful and well, sunny. In the spirit, our goal was to create whimsical cocktails. I am always trying to think of new ways to incorporate Campari into cocktails. You don't see a lot of Tiki Campari drinks, so the desire to create this cocktail grew from that. As far as thinking of what to infuse the Campari with — we immediately thought dried ancho chile peppers. Rather than making the drink spicy, ancho chiles just impart a subtle heat — a heat you feel in the finish. Since the drink is sort of tropical, for the lack of a better word, we liked the idea of it being somewhat 'warming' at the same time."

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
