The negroni is a sophisticated, elegant, and effortlessly Italian cocktail. You might be surprised at how easy it is to make a negroni. This amazing negroni recipe will bring elegance to any event. The best part? It takes very little effort. That’s all we need.
It’s a perfect combination of bittersweet amaro, herbal gin, and rounded off with smooth red vermouth. This is why the negroni cocktail is so beloved. How did this cocktail become so popular? It all began when a man walked into a bar. This was Count Negroni. He wanted something stronger than his regular americano. It consisted of Campari, vermouth, and soda water. The negroni was created by his friend, who also happens to be the bartender.
The negroni cocktail is still a popular drink in Italy, as well as the rest of the globe, 100 years later. Even the original recipe has been modified a few times, including the negroni sbagliato and the white negroni. Negroni calories are very low, which makes it a delightfully guilt-free beverage.
Every ingredient in this negroni recipe is important, as we mentioned. We recommend Hendrick’s Gin, a floral English classic made with 11 botanicals. A negroni can only be considered legal if it is a Campari negroni. Campari will always be the preferred amaro for this cocktail. Martini is our recommendation for sweet vermouth.
