When it comes to iconic drinks, Campari is most definitely one of them. Of course, that's mainly attributed to its vibrant red colour — but probably also because it's been around for over 150 years now. It's quite the established aperitif.
If you're keen to pay your due respect to the Italian drink — or just want to pretend we're in the midst of European summer — you'd do well to get down to The Ludlow this month. For the four Saturdays in August between 8pm and 10pm, the Campari cart will roll into the Southbank venue and deliver complimentary Campari Tonic tasters (as well as some Italian snacks, naturally) to some very lucky aperitif lovers. It's called the Rediscover Red Lounge and, along with the signature drink — which perfectly blends the bitterness of tonic with the orange of Campari — you'll also be able to order a range of other cocktails expertly mixed with the enduring red liqueur.
The lounge is being held in conjunction with Campari's Rediscover Red exhibition at QV's No Vacancy Gallery, which will display vintage Campari artworks and advertisements until Sunday, August 7. Plus, if you swing past on Friday, August 5 or Saturday, August 6 between 3 and 5pm, they'll even give you a Campari Tonic taster to accompany the artworks.
