A few years back, we purchased a bottle of Campari, thinking we might enjoy the popular Campari and Soda. It was perhaps a bit too bitter, and the drink didn’t make it into our repertoire.
Then, last winter, we discovered a recipe for this Negroni in the January issue of Gourmet. We pulled out the dusty bottle of Campari, tried this recipe and liked it right away. However, we both agreed that it was more of a summer drink than a winter drink. Well, summer is here!
Don’t be fooled by the color. This is not a sweet punch-like concoction. Gin and Campari combine with the sweet vermouth for a slightly sweet, slightly bitter, yet extremely refreshing beverage. Enjoy!
