Negroni, classical cocktail

Here is the second drink for the Imbibe magazine and Campari sponsored Negroni Week. Though this might be the standard Negroni, even it has variables. We’ve used the highly aromatic, 114-proof Genius Navy Strength Gin. You can serve this in a cocktail glass or over ice in an old-fashioned glass. You also can go with a lemon or orange garnish. The lemon garnish will give the Campari a taste spike; the orange adds a sweeter note.

Negroni Negroni vert
1 ounce gin
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth

Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass with a splash of soda. Garnish with an orange slice.
