Negroni – Gin, Campari, Sweet Vermouth

This tasty cocktail isn’t to everyone’s liking. Unlike the Jasmine cocktail it is very dry, but if that’s your thing, this is for you. The vermouth and gin work against the campari to bring out the usually masked orange flavour of the campari. A great pre-dinner cocktail but not the sort drink you can suck back all night. I suspect Jess might argue with that.

To take the edge off slightly a squeeze of lemon juice will make it a little bit sweeter.

Negroni Ingredients

  • 30ml Campari
  • 30ml Gin
  • 22ml Sweet Vermouth
  • Optionally add a squeeze of lemon juice to reduce the dryness

Shake over plenty of ice and serve in an old-fashioned glass with a burnt orange garnish.

    Well, I like to…so I ask for dry vermouth instead of sweet. I know…awful. Or…montenegro in sub for rosso.
