Gin, Compari, Vermouth

The Negroni, like many popular cocktails, has gone through a variety of transformations but I prefer the classic recipe: A one-to-one combination of gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. The real star of the drink is the Campari, an apéritif which has been made in the Novare region of Italy since the mid 19th century. Back then it was originally colored with a dye derived from crushed cochineal insects; we’re happy to report they use a different method these days. This classic Italian palate cleanser is best served cold and stirred, not shaken.


  • 1 ounce dry gin
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce vermouth rosso
  • Orange peel garnish


  1. Stir all of the liquid ingredients in a glass with ice. Strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
