If a mojito is the farthest your bartending skills take you, fear no more. Add to your repertoire sneakily (no extra effort, stellar results) – the Negroni, an absolutely smashing cocktail that balances bitters and a good pouring gin and a dash of vermouth rosso. Don’t fret over the ingredients sounding like a mouthful; the Negroni when made is totally worth it!
What you’ll need:
1 oz (1 part) Gin,
1 oz (1 part) Campari,
1 oz (1 part) Sweet red Vermouth (rosso)
An orange peel for garnish
An Old Fashioned glass for serving
(Yes, really that’s all!)
What you need to do:
Stir into glass over ice.
Twist the orange peel and artistically swirl-and-rub it on the rim of the glass.
Garnish in the glass and serve!
Did You Know?
The Negroni originated in Florence, Italy when the Count Camillo Negroni concocted it by asking the bartender to strengthen his favorite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin rather than the regular soda water. The bartender also added an orange garnish than the typical lemon garnish of the Americano to signify that it was a new recipe!
The drink was such a super success that the Negroni family set up a distillery and went on to produce a ready-to-drink version of the cocktail too! #CocktailLovers most definitely!
