This one was a perfect Negroni, which is rare when I order one in a restaurant.
Beside it is some tuna sashimi guacamole, which is not an immediate choice as an accompaniment, but totally perfect in all sorts of ways.
How To Make: Negroni Straight Up
- A dash of Angostura
- 35ml of Gin
- 35ml of Campari
- 35ml of Martini Rosso
- Preferred glass would be a Cocktail glass
- Garnish with a rind of grapefruit peel
The Negroni is the champion of all cocktails.
Stir everything together with ice in a glass mixing jug. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Use a citrus stripper to peel a rind of grapefruit, but do this over the glass so that the oils from the skin coat the surface of the drink.
Usually if you order this drink in London, it's usually served built over ice, but I'm not a big fan of it this way. I might have it over ice when it's really hot out, or if I want to sip a cool longer drink.
Avoid any further bullshit.
