Thirsty Thursday: The Negroni

Negroni

In need of inspiration for your post-work libation? Give the Negroni a try. This Italian cocktail is usually enjoyed as an aperitif, so it’s a perfect pick at happy hour.

Tony Abou-Ganim, author of “The Modern Mixologist”, says the Negroni is his go-to drink. “The Negroni is the perfect marrige of Campari, gin and sweet vermouth — perfection in a glass!

Tony Abou Ganim

Tony will be stirring up definitive renditions of the true, original Negroni — equal parts Campari, Gin and sweet vermouth — at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic Gala this Friday at the New York Public Library. The Gala is the kick-off event of The Manhattan Cocktail Classic, a five-day celebration of everything cocktail-related through various talks and events throughout the city.

For those of us unable to attend the event, Tony shared his classic recipe, plus three twists on the classic Negroni.
