Thirsty Thursday-The Negroni

I thought that I would change things up a bit with a classic cocktail...
The Negroni.

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!!

The Negroni

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.)
