I thought that I would change things up a bit with a classic cocktail...
I normally stick to sweet, fruity cocktails,
but thought that I would venture out a little this week.
This cocktail is subtly sweet due to the Sweet Vermouth,
herbally thanks to the Gin,
and a little bit bitter due to the Campari.
All in all,
a very good cocktail.
This cocktail is best enjoyed slowly...
it is quite strong.
Don't get me wrong,
I'm not complaining.
I still enjoyed it VERY MUCH!!
2 ounces gin
2 ounces sweet vermouth
2 ounces Campari
1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
orange twist for garnish
Combine the gin, vermouth, Campari, and orange juice in a glass with ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
(The classic Negroni doesn't have the orange juice, but I really liked the addition of the freshly squeezed orange juice to this cocktail.)
