Created by the head barman of the famous Hotel De Paris in Monte Carlo in 1957, the Sputnik cocktail was made to mark the visit of a Russian diplomat, using vodka to celebrate the start of the famous Soviet space programme. In October that year, the Russians had put into orbit the first artificial satellite called Sputnik.
Sputnik means friend of travel – so if you love travel as much as I do, what a better idea than to raise a toast with this cocktail on your next journey.
– 2 parts (1 oz) Campari
– 3 parts (1, ¼ oz) Vodka (Campari recommends SKYY Vodka)
– 1 part (1/2 oz) Triple Sec

Shake well all the ingredients with ice, than strain it into a chilled cocktail glass.
