Run the Julius is what we’ve all been waiting for: a Campari Ramos. To the expected cream and Campari base, Annie Williams Pierce adds a hint of tropical fruit by way of banana liqueur while a small measure of Montenegro adds a subtle herbaceous quality as acid-adjusted orange juice lends a welcome citrus tang.
