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. mezcal-negroni-cocktail

Using a good mezcal lends a distinct smokiness and additional depth to an already complex cocktail. A great variation for tequila drinkers and scotch lovers alike.

  • 1 ounce mezcal
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce Campari

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 a lime twist.
