Classic Negroni

Scott Phillips

Servings: 1

This ruby-red classic Italian cocktail is pleasantly bitter with a hint of sweetness from the vermouth. Rubbing an orange twist around the rim gives the drink a lovely aromatic note. A dry gin with hints of citrus and not too much juniper is the perfect foil for all of these flavors.


  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) best-quality dry gin, such as Plymouth
  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) Campari
  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) best-quality sweet (rosso) vermouth, such as Carpano Antica
  • 1 small navel orange

  • Fill a cocktail shaker or large glass halfway with ice and add the gin, Campari, and vermouth. Using a long-handled spoon, stir for 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled rocks glass over fresh ice (or a chilled martini glass if you prefer no ice).
  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove a 3 x 1/2-inch piece of peel from the orange, avoiding the white pith, to create a twist. Twist it over the drink to release a spray of citrus oil, run it around the rim of the glass, and then drop it into the drink. Serve.
