Warning: You might start talking in a British accent and pretending you're wearing a crown when you drink this festive cocktail. The name for this red boozy drink is the Regal Campari Spritz (now you understand the accent thing). And it's really fun to drink—plain and simple.
What's also plain and simple? Its list of ingredients. You only need to buy three things to make this healthy cocktail (you can thank bartender Robby Nelson of The Long Island Bar in Brooklyn for that), which makes it easy to stock your liquor cabinet so you have enough to please the crowd at your holiday party.
Your guests are going to be so impressed when you wheel out the bar cart with these cocktail goodies at the ready (fancy bottle of champs and rose gold/marble ice bucket optional, but also optimal).
