This dark red gin cocktail can be made sweet or bitter. The Negroni, as an official IBA (International Bartenders Association) cocktail, is made with equal parts bitters, gin, and sweet vermouth. If you can actually drink that amount of bitters, make sure it’s the quality stuff (like Campari). I, however, have a weaker palate than Count de Negroni.
1 oz Gin
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
1 oz Extra Dry Vermouth
Stir over ice and garnish with citrus fruits or those cool little cocktail monkeys.
Can also be topped off with your favorite cola for a classy replacement for your rum and cokes. Just leave the bitters at your bar.
