It’s Time to Revisit a Timeless Apéritif

Classic Negroni Cocktail

The negroni is a classic cocktail that is easy to prepare, with relatively few ingredients. It’s a classic apéritif! 

  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. campari
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • Orange twist, for garnish

Mix ingredients, and pour into an old fashioned cocktail glass. Add twist for garnish. Note: Replicate this recipe, minus the gin and add in soda water to taste, and you’ve got another classic—the Americano.
