Cocktails for Two: Negroni

negroni

The negroni has quickly become one of my favorite cocktails. The mixture of gin, Campari, and vermouth have a nice warmth in the winter. They are easy to stir together for a quick cocktail hour or after dinner drink. I like to enjoy mine at home with a cheeseboard, but it will go with just about anything. So, let's raise a glass to the fact that it is Friday and Monday is Lead Day. I'll be making this cocktail my Lead Day beverage of choice. Cheers, y'all.

Negroni

3 ounces gin 
1.5 ounces Campari 
1.5 ounces vermouth 
2 grapefruit peels 

Combine gin, Campari, and vermouth in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir mixture gently until chilled. Pour into two lowball glasses with ice. Run the grapefruit peel along the edge of the glass and us as a garnish. Cheers.
