The Campari After Dark Cocktail

Italian designer Marcello Nizzoli created this poster in 1926. “One of the rarest and most brilliant Art Deco designs ever created,” says Rennert. “A masterpiece of composition and a classic of Cubism…the entirety of the composition lunges toward the viewer in gravity-defying space.”

The Cocktail

This cocktail looks like a tiki drink, but it’s not at all fruity. Coffee-infused Campari provides the base and vibrant red hue, while small amounts of other spirits like applejack and smoky Scotch add complexity.


2 tablespoons coffee beans
1½ ounces Campari
¾ ounce Laird’s Bonded Straight Apple Brandy
¼ ounce Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
¼ ounce Caol Ila Single Malt Whisky
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Lime wheel, for garnish
Brandied cherry, for garnish
Mint sprig, for garnish


In mixing glass, combine coffee beans and Campari. Infuse for 2 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and ice. Stir, then strain into hurricane glass over fresh ice. Garnish with lime wheel, cherry and mint sprig. Serve with straw
