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 a Negroni in three ways by only swapping out one ingredient. For this you’ll need: Campari, sweet vermouth, gin, bourbon, and mezcal. Bonus: Prosecco.
To make a Negroni – combine 1 ounce of gin, 1 ounce of vermouth, and 1 ounce of Campari over ice in a rocks glass and stir. Garnish with a half-orange wheel. This drink goes well before dinner with Castelvetrano olives or salty Marcona almonds that are meant to stimulate your appetite before dinner.
