Meet Anita, Australia’s Cocktail

More than a drink, it's a story

Thalita Alves is a name you need to remember. She is one of the best bartenders in Australia. Partnering with Campari she has now published her cocktail, Anita, in the Campari Red Diaries Calendar. Best of all, Australia sits at the top, January.

The Anita is more than just a cocktail but a rather lovely story from Thalita around where she is from, where she has come and how it all comes together. Before you see the recipe below, learn the story through the video below.
