* For the Coconut Washed Campari: Combine melted coconut to Campari. Stir thoroughly to combine. Allow to stand. Chill overnight. Strain the liquid from the hardened coconut oil. 

** For the Cacao Infused Rosso Vermouth: Add a cup of cacao nibs to Rosso Vermouth and store in a cool, dark area for 24 – 48 hours depending on your preferred strength and intensity. Strain & bottle for use. 

*** Make a saline solution: Mix 20 g of salt with 80 ml of water. Shake until clear and keep it in a dropper dispenser. Why a salt solution? It reduces bitterness and enhances citrus flavours.
