Garibaldi - campari and orange juice cocktail

Important notes

The Dante in NYC is known for their Garibaldi and that what we are aiming for here.
now, I know not everyone can get their hands on fresh Sicilian oranges so I will give you a pass.

But, you cannot skip the part of the fluffy fresh orange juice.

First, do yourself a favor and use fresh fruit and not a bottled juice.
then we need to squeeze the juice into a bowl and start whisking the juice to create a fluffy foam.

Whisking the juice can take between 10 to 20 minutes.
This step is unskippable so if you have a machine that can do it for you – you’re lucky.
