The Italian Sunrise Cocktail

Happily Eva After
This Italian Sunrise cocktail mixes the iconic flavor of Campari with the sweetness of fresh Orange with no added sugar! In my opinion, it is the PERFECT brunch cocktail, which is why I named it after an Italian Sunrise.

  • Blender


  • 3 oz Campari
  • 2 large oranges Plus 1 more for garnish. (Try to get Valencia, if you can.)
  • 6 large ice cubes
  • 2 sprigs basil for garnish


  • Begin by soaking your oranges in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and warm water. This will remove anything yucky from the outside rind, since we will be eating it! After 2-3 minutes, rinse the oranges in cold water. 
  • In a blender, combine 1 whole orange (seeds removed) sliced up into eighths. Keep the peel on. Add the juice of one orange as well. Blend on high to combine. It should look very frothy. If you need to loosen up the mixture at all, add water 1 tablespoon at a time. 
  • Put 1.5 ounces of Campari in the bottom of each cocktail glass. 0879 Step 4: Add Orange Mixture - Pour the Orange mixture over both glasses and stir gently to combine. 
  • Drop 3 large ice cubes in each glass. Garnish with an orange slice and sprig of basil for an extra sensory Italian experience!
