Summer is the season for day-drinking, but high-octane cocktails and hot afternoons aren’t always the best combination. This ode to a classic negroni leaves out the gin and instead combines Campari and sweet vermouth with club soda or tonic for a fizzy, refreshing cocktail. It’s big on flavor and low in alcohol to get you through a long, lazy afternoon by the pool.
