In its birthplace — Italy — the Negroni is an apéritif, a before-dinner drink. Here, we drink it before, during and after dinner. It's just that good. Italy always has the best ideas!
The Negroni is bitter, but balanced. Elegant, but unfussy. A fantastic go-to drink. And, the recipe is easy to memorize — the proportions are 1:1:1.
Cardinal Spirits bar manager Logan Hunter shows us how to make a classic Negroni:
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 ounce Cardinal Spirits Standard Dry Gin
- Add Campari, sweet vermouth and gin to a tall glass with ice, then stir.
- Strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube.
- Squeeze an orange peel over the cocktail to release the oil, then twist the peel and use as garnish.
