Best Classic Drinks negroni recipe 2021

A traditionally made Negroni is stirred, not shaken, and built over ice in an old-fashioned or rocks glass and garnished with a slice of orange. Outside of Italy an orange peel is often used in place of an orange slice.

The Negroni is, quite simply, a perfect cocktail. Maybe it’s the perfect cocktail. With equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth, it couldn’t be easier to make, proving that, like Stooges and Musketeers, the best things really do come in threes. Intended to be sipped, it’s refreshing on a hot day. It’s youthful next to an Old Fashioned. It lends the drinker a certain continental sophistication. And it doesn’t skimp on the ABV.

Bitter, sweet, dry, and refreshing all at once, the carmine-colored cocktail has developed a reputation as a summer mainstay, but the truth is there’s never really a bad time to whip one up. And this year, the Negroni is celebrating its hundredth birthday. We’ll drink to that.
