It's Negroni Week 2015, where bars around the world gather together with Imbibe and Campari to celebrate for good causes. Here at Red & Brown HQ we want to keep the celebration going at home with classic cocktails and new riffs on the world's greatest 3-ingredient cocktail.negroni-cocktail

Arguably Brown's favorite cocktail, a well-made negroni is an exercise in beauty and balance. We're adamant about serving these classics on the rocks. Not only does the taste profile change as it dilutes, but it ensures (kind of) that you're not knocking back full-strength booze bombs.

  • 1 ounce gin (we typically use a London Dry style, but Old Tom and other more American styles work nicely too with their slightly¬†softer¬†flavors)
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass or pint glass with plenty of ice. Stir until well chilled, about 15-20 seconds.

Pour into a rocks glass with a single large ice cube. Garnish with an orange twist.
