Cocktail Hour: The Grapefruit Negroni.

grapefruit negroni cocktail recipe - the stripe

A few weeks ago I was planning out my February content calendar and looking through my my cocktails archive to see where the holes were. I was shocked to see that I’ve actually never shared a Negroni recipe here with you. The horror! Seriously though, the Negroni is my favorite cocktail. I typically stick to vodka sodas because of the hangover + calorie factors, but if I could drink unlimited cocktails, it would be all about the Negroni. It’s the perfect mix of bitter + sweet and just so delicious. It’s not for everyone (a few of my girlfriends hate ’em) but for me, nothing is better.

I had some fresh grapefruit laying around and had the idea to incorporate grapefruit… thinking that the bitter/sweet grapefruit would complement the Campari nicely, and it did!

    I die for a negroni. I lived on them during study abroad in Florence, I think it’s the signature drink of Florence?? Thanks for the inspo with the grapefruit, can’t wait to try!
