Here’s a closer look at the classic Negroni recipe, plus a handful of sparkling Negroni variations that will put the “cheer” in “cheers!”
Let’s start here. One part sweet vermouth + one part Campari + one part gin = the classic Negroni recipe. Stirred (not shaken!) and served over ice, it’s one of the easy mixed drinks that every amateur bartender should master.
Sour meets sweet in The Stripe’s tangy twist on the traditional. Simply make your Negroni as you usually would, then add a dash of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. And in case you didn’t know, you can use the leftover fruit and rind to clean your house.
St. Germain Negroni
For a lighter libation, swap gin for St. Germain like Mike and Steph of I Am a Food Blog. One of the secret cocktail ingredients every master mixologist loves, it’s an elderflower liqueur that adds an airy, floral finish to your drink.
