Back in the seventies, in the house in Menorca, we used have a "sundowner" which comprised Campari, Dry Cinzano vermouth and orange juice over ice and thought ourselves s-o-o sophisticated. Can't remember the proportions of the components. It was very refreshing and not sweet and cloying or "take me home in a wheelbarrow" as a lot of cocktails tend to be. Can't remember it's name.
Nowadays I'm not really a cocktail girl but I am partial to a glass of chilled Tio Pepe, a brand of fino sherry. Just the ticket as an aperitif before dinner when a cocktail might take the edge off your appetite
