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!
- One oz. Gin
- One oz. Campari
- One oz. Sweet Red Vermouth
- Big Ice Cube (I love this mold.)
- Hand Held Juicer (I use mine a shocking amount!)
Pour one oz. gin, campari, and vermouth over your ice cube.
Cut up your grapefruit and add one eighth of the grapefruit to the juicer. Squeeze over the cocktail.
Stir, and serve with a nice big piece of grapefruit rind.
