Campari Bitter Bash

Campari Bitter Bash

Earlier this week the folks at Campari held their Holiday Bitter Bash at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco. It was night of Negronis and other tasty Campari cocktails. Upon entering the bar we were greeted by some of Santa’s Helpers with a bowlful this wonderful punch created by mixologist Jon Gasparini of Rye on the Road
