How to make the perfect Negroni
Three ingredients - ultimate refreshment. What's 100-years-old, but fresher than than a daisy? Why, the Negroni of course. The Negroni is said to have been invented in Florence by an Italian count who demanded that the bartender replace the club soda in his Americano with gin.
The perfect Negroni cocktail is all about balance: use equal parts gin, vermouth and campari.
25ml sweet vermouth
25ml Campari ice
Slice of orange, to garnish
Pour the gin, vermouth and Campari into a mixing glass with ice. Stir well until the outside of the glass feels cold. Strain into a tumbler and add 1 large ice sphere or some fresh ice, and garnish with an orange slice.
