5 comments on “Negroni

  1. The Negroni is a great classic cocktail (and, as you mention, drop the gin and add seltzer, and you have an Americano, another classic). The drink is very Italian, very much summer, which means in the winter, it is a great reminder of those summer days. I agree that the Esquire version is better. Adding a little more gin seems to tame the beast that is the negroni. Another version I like is the “Nerina” from Jason Kosmas and Dushan Zaric’s cocktail recipes “Speakeasy”. It measures 1 part Gin (Plymouth, though I prefer New Amsterdam), 1 partPunt e Mes vermouth, and part Meletti Emory, adelightful Italian “digestivo”. Garnish with a twist of orange.

    • I knew about the Americano, but haven’t heard of the Nerina. I’ll have to see if I can find some Meletti. I wonder if Valley Spirits has it (they have a surprising assortment of the very odd) or Corti Bros. Thanks for the heads up.
