A Negroni is a classic cocktail, with a somewhat mysterious and unverifiable history involving a thirsty Count, a talented barman and the right amount of inspiration. All you need to know about it is that it’s delicious year round, something in our opinion only a couple cocktails can really claim. It’s also the most famous 1:1:1 cocktail recipe, making it incredibly easy to make and also versatile as there are a plethora of variations. Our recipe is one such variation, only in the sense that we add a couple dashes of bitters. Not necessary but oh, so delicious.
- Combine ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice and stir gently for 10 seconds.
- Strain into a rocks glass over ice.
- Roll an orange peel skin side down over the drink to release it’s essential oils then stir the peel into the cocktail. So good.
