Myself and my mentor Angel Negrín hold to the firm belief that #EveryWeekIsNegroniWeek. I created this cocktail as a series of drinks for Negroni Week and love how the smoothness of St-Germain mellows out the bitterness of Campari. I like to keep Negroni bottled* and ready to go so that I can use it to mix with cocktails or sip it whenever I so desire. The bonus of keeping it bottled is that the Gin, Sweet Vermouth and Campari will blend together more and more with each passing day!
- 2 oz Negroni
- 3/4 oz St-Germain
- Orange peel
Combine ingredients in tin over cracked ice and stir. Strain into rocks glass over one big rock. Express Orange peel and use as garnish.
*For this particular bottled Negroni I used Plymouth Gin, Martini & Rossi Sweet Vermouth and Campari.
