We’re delighted to have celebrity chef, author of My Italian Kitchen, TV personality and restaurant owner, Laura Sharrad, share some of her scrumptious summer recipes. Check out her Campari Shakerato recipe… it’s the perfect sunset cocktail.
Makes 2 cocktails
2 x 90ml pours Campari
Note: can be substituted with Aperol or a sweet red vermouth.
🍊 Shake the Campari and vermouth over a heap of ice in a cocktail shaker for about 2 minutes to ensure it gets cold and aerated.
🍊 Pour through a cocktail strainer into two chilled glasses and enjoy with a twist of orange.
Originally from Melbourne before relocating to McLaren Vale in South Australia, Laura Sharrad grew up with a wooden spoon in her hand cooking beside her nonnas. Her rich Italian heritage has played a heavy hand in her epicurean journey, which was further strengthened after living in Tuscany. A former MasterChef contestant and an extensively trained chef, the impressive career of this 20-something has leapt from strength to strength. Laura recently opened her own restaurant, Nida Bar and Pasta, with her husband and fellow chef, Max Sharrad. With another restaurant and cookbook in the works, Laura says the long‑term dream is to buy a property on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, teach students to cook and grow produce for a small sustainable restaurant.
