It may be the end of Negroni week, the incredible initiative where bartenders work on unique variations of this loved cocktail, giving $1 of the sale of each to the charity of choice, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pour ourselves another drink!
Say bye to Negroni Week with us (or toast to the next one!), after the cut:
What is a Negroni?
Traditionally, a Negroni cocktail is made out of one part gin, one part vermouth and one part Campari, topped with an orange peel.
The Ultimate Negroni
Esquire believes the ultimate Negroni is all about the equal parts of alcohol! Don’t forget to shake well with cracked ice, before straining into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of orange peel, of course.
Want a twist to your Classic Negroni? The Boulevardier a welcome variation, substituting the gin component for bourbon or rye whiskey. Some recipes call for 1 1/2 parts instead of equal parts alcohol, so it’s about whatever you’re comfortable with!
Another variation of the Classic Negroni is the Pink Negroni. We like the subtle change to the classic, thanks to the sweetness of the aperitif wine, Lillet Blanc. Garnish with fresh tarragon and a pretty flower, and this gorgeous drink is ready for appreciation!
Here’s to the next Negroni Week!
