We just returned from a grueling journey to Pescara. After spending all day requesting adjustments to the Fall line in a boiling hot sweatshop, this refreshing, summer cocktail hit the spot.
The bitter sweet flavor is so delicious, Jennifer and I were dancing on the table before we left for dinner. Unfortunately, it was a very old, rickety, Italian table. Jennifer landed on my concussion and I’m still nursing my wounds. I don’t blame Fabrizio.
Negroni The Official Cocktail of Summer ’07
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce Juniper Green or your favorite gin
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
Shake gently with ice and strain over cracked ice. If you like your cocktails sweeter, use a full ounce of vermouth. Proceed with caution.
