In my opinion every girl (or guy!) should have a signature cocktail. Something you can easily whip up to impress your friends when you have company over. Wine and beer are great of course, but it just feels a bit more special to be able to offer friends a cocktail. My favorite cocktail to make is a negroni. It’s bitter, it’s sweet… it’s strong… it’s delicious! It’s also very hard to mess up. With just three ingredients (equal parts gin, campari, sweet vermouth) it is definitely a staple in my cocktail arsenal. I always make sure to have all three ingredients on my cocktail bar.
Watch the video below and for bonus points, keep your glasses in the freezer and use a giant ice cube mold! Also! If you want to make it a spritz (a little less boozy) you can add a couple ounces of soda water.
How To Make The Perfect Negroni
Freeze your glasses for an hour or two before friends are arriving!
Add ice cubes to your shaker or mixing glass.
Add your alcohol – one part gin, one part campari, one part sweet vermouth.
Chill! Stir! Let it cool, ideally for a few minutes. Stir again!
Strain into a glass (ideally a rocks glass!) and garnish with an orange peel.
Enjoy. Wasn’t that easy?
