Negroni: A classic, easy-to-prepare cocktail that demonstrates the importance of a garnish.
More than just an afterthought or a visual flare, a proper garnish can separate a great cocktail from a good one.
And so it is with a Negroni: An orange wheel (or even just an orange peel) can elevate a Negroni to a wonderful place that it couldn’t reach with just a lemon twist or no garnish.
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1 ounce Campari
Shake with cracked ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange wheel.
