Negroni

Negroni

This series highlights the International Bartenders Association (IBA) The Unforgettables cocktails. I have decided to work my way through this series of cocktails to investigate the classics as I teach myself mixology and build out my home bar.

So, I’ve returned to the Negroni. This is a classic. My first go-around with this was . . . bitter. Well, of course, as it was my first encounter with Campari.

I made it the same way: one ounce each of gin (Beefeater), Campari, and sweet vermouth (Carpana Antica). I think my palate has expanded to accept Campari. It is indeed bitter, but I am enjoying this far more this time. I garnish with an orange zest instead of a slice. I can see this being something I have on occasion.
