Another aperitif based cocktail, the Negroni is much like The American cocktail, only stronger. This is a great before dinner drink. Don’t let the soft, slightly bitter and fruity flavor of the Campari aperitif cause you to let your guard down, remember…there’s gin in this bad boy and he’s waiting to slap you. One or two as the other dinner guests start arriving is perfect but remember, you have to cook. The flavor is very European and subtle.
Here we go –
- 1 ½ oz Sweet Vermouth
- 1 ½ oz Campari
- 1 ½ oz Gin
Pour ingredients over ice in an Old-Fashioned glass, garnish with a lemon peel.
