Classic Negroni

Created in the Hotel Baglioni in Florence in the 1920s, the Negroni is a classic that owes its longevity to its dependably delicious nature and simplicity. Composed of only three ingredients measured in equal amounts, a Negroni is remarkably difficult to foul up, even by novice bartenders.


  • 1 ounce dry gin
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

There are two common ways to serve a Negroni: on the rocks, or straight up. For the former, simply combine the ingredients in an old-fashioned glass filled with ice; stir to combine, twist a thin piece of orange peel over the drink for aromatics and use the twist as garnish.
