Mr Negroni and I are getting married! Am I sad enough yet?

If you know me, you know I’m a Negroni fan.

The first time I ever had a negroni was when I made one for a guest at the bar, who proclaimed that it was “perfect.” From there, I knew I had to try this drink on my own and have since fallen in love.

The origin’s of the cocktails are unknown, however it is widely believed that Count Camillo Negroni invented the drink in Florence, Italy when he wanted to booze up his favorite cocktail, the light and refreshing Americano (Campari, sweet vermouth and club soda) by adding gin in place of the soda. Well done, Count Negroni. I would give you a high-five, for sure, if you were still around.

So what exactly is a Negroni?

Simple, 3 ingredients—Gin, Campari and Sweet Vermouth—all in equal parts, stirred and strained or over fresh ice. Garnished with an orange twist or slice and finito! This drink is at once savory, crisp and bitter, but with an underlying sweetness to it. In addition, as you slowly sip—yes, this drink is a sipper—the flavors of the cocktail start to open up and become more pronounced, giving the cocktail new life minute after minute. 

After some time, you can start to experiment and create your own variations with spirits like Cynar, Aperol, Punt e Mes and Lillet. In fact, you can even make a white negroni, but we’ll save that for another day.

Bartender tip: You always want to stir cocktails that contain only spirits as you’ll get a clean, vibrant and clear finished product—no bits of ice here!

It’s Negroni-o-clock somewhere. This one was shot at the Grand Hotel Vesuvio bar, when photographer @wmbrownproject was there shooting the Masters of the Cloth story for our March 2014 issue. #negroni #relaunch #naples #takemethere #ourfinds
