The quintessential Italian cocktail, Negroni, is one of those drinks that never go out of style.
- 1 ounces gin mild flavor
- 1 ounce campari
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, with several cubes of ice. Shake, and pour into a martini glass if serving straight, or a highball glass if on the rocks. Garnish with a slice of orange.
Use a mild flavored gin.
The bitterness of Campari can be an acquired taste for some. A less-pronounced version of this, which my husband still prefers, dilutes the bitter Campari with a bit more gin, 2 parts gin to 1 part campari and 1 part vermouth.
