I’m drinking a Negroni right now. And I thought you’d like to know that it’s pretty delicious.
A bottle of Campari is always a handy thing to have lying around. You can make Negronis, throw a splash in some champagne, mix it with bitter lemon, or add some to your Bijou for a bitter-er-er version of something already delicious. So go to your local liquor store, drop $28 on a bottle of Campari, and make it work for you. Here’s a negroni recipe to get you started.
3/4 oz Gin (I drink Hendricks or Bluecoat)
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Dolin is the way to go here)
3/4 oz Campari
Combine and stir all ingredients (don’t shake, people. Come on now). Strain into an old fashioned glass and garnish with an orange peel, not an orange slice.
