My name is Paul Feinstein, author of Italy Cocktails: An Elegant Collection of Over 100 Recipes Inspired by Italia. For Negroni Week, I’m showing you how to make the classic Negroni that was invented in Florence in 1919.
To make the original Negroni – combine 1 ounce of Bulldog Gin, 1 ounce of 1757 Vermouth di Torino Rosso, and 1 ounce of Campari over ice in a rocks glass and stir. Garnish with a half-orange wheel. This drink is meant to be imbibed before dinner and goes well with salty snacks and olives that help stimulate your appetite.
