The Negroni is, quite simply, a perfect cocktail. With equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth, it couldn’t be easier to make, proving that, like Destiny’s Child and Run - DMC, the best things really do come in threes. Intended to be sipped or not, it’s refreshing on a hot day.
Bitter, sweet, dry, and refreshing all at once, the sexy velvet red cocktail has developed a reputation as a summer mainstay. Add a touch of smoke and warm this up, perfect for a cooler winter’s night.
