A colourful and sweet mix of a Martini and an Americano, this Negroni recipe gets you started with a classic.
The small amount of labour involved in a Negroni make it a popular choice for making cocktails at home. Made of equal parts gin, vermouth, and Campari, the Negroni also requires few tools. Add the ingredients straight to a glass over ice and stir, then garnish with an orange slice. No shaking or straining required.
Negroni is a popular cocktail for barrel ageing. Due to the faultless 1:1:1 ratio, you can add a this cocktail to any size vessel. Ageing barrels have a charred oak interior that mellows the tones of a Negroni. The smokier, smoother flavour adds another dimension to the already popular cocktail. Remember to use a fine strainer when dispensing a barrel aged cocktail, in case any pieces of the charred walls end up in your glass.
