NEGRONI #2

An ongoing series exploring my varying subtle takes on one of the most classic cocktails.


I usually crave a spirit-forward cocktail, regardless of the season. Summer calls for crisp Negronis chilled to perfection. But people have many opinions about the Negroni----lots of "always" and "never." Always and never don't work well for me.


I've read that one should always use a dry gin in a Negroni, and one should never stray from Campari. Today, I break both those rules. After all, if you like a gin, you should drink it, and if you switch Campari for something within the same category that has the same strength, what could go wrong?


Please don't mind the home-grown photo; I do what I can during a pandemic.
