A negroni is a classic cocktail recipe made with gin, sweet red vermouth, and Campari that has a vibrant red hue that’s great at holidays but equally welcome at parties throughout the year.
This best negroni recipe plays with the proportions of the classic negroni to create a slightly stiffer concoction. Whereas tradition dictates equal parts gin, sweet red vermouth, and Campari, this rendition increases the gin and decreases the sweet stuff.–Renee Schettler Rossi
