Balanced with bitter, citrus and sweet notes, the popular negroni is particularly a crowd favorite when the weather warms up because it’s best enjoyed with a nice dose of sunshine and a soft breeze.
The simple, yet satisfying, classic Italian cocktail contains just three ingredients: gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. Many restaurants stick closely to the traditional recipe, but that doesn’t stop curious bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts from experimenting with all kinds of variations to its original form. Some replace the gin with trendy spirits like Singani or overproof rum, while others play around with preparations like nitrogen infusion or frozen blends. Still others tweak the classic bitter or sweet components with counterparts like locally made amaro.
The ingredients may be different, but the intent is typically the same — a slightly bitter apéritif that is the drink of the season.
