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.
This is some Inception-level drinking with a variation on a variation. We fell in love with Finger Lakes Distilling's White Pike Whiskey, a white whiskey that's actually "aged 18 minutes" and immediately subbed it for bourbon in all the cocktails we could think of. Its creamy, slightly sweet corn notes play nicely with our white negroni ingredients, making it a brown liquor drinker's solution to summer drinks.
- 1 ounce Finger Lakes Distilling White Pike Whiskey
- 1 ounce Cocchi Americano
- 1 ounce Dolin Blanc 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 a grapefruit twist.
