Sweet, bitter, and irresistibly refreshing, the Negroni is a classic cocktail that's hard to mess up. All you need is a 1:1:1 ratio of gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari. If you're being a cocktail purist, a Negroni cocktail should be stirred, not shaken, because all the ingredients are clear, and shaking the mixture "bruises" it, making it slightly hazy. (Test Kitchen Tip: shake mixtures with citrus juice or dairy.) Stir for at least a minute or until the mixing glass gets icy and pre-chill the glass in order to get it cold enough. If you wipe the rim of the glass with the orange twist before dropping it into the drink, you get a bit more flavor from it. Serve in an old-fashioned glass with a single giant ice cube or orb.


  • 1 oz gin

  • 1 oz sweet vermouth

  • 1 oz campari


  1. Add ice to a rocks glass. Wipe rim of glass with an orange twist. Drop twist into the glass. In a cocktail shaker or mixing glass combine 2 Tbsp. (1 oz.) each dry gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari. Add ice cubes; stir until very cold. Strain liquid into prepared glass.

Negroni Sbagliato

Meaning broken Negroni in Italian, the Negroni Sbagliato is a refreshing alternative to cocktail fans that don't care for gin. To make it, simply swap the 1 ounce of gin with sparkling wine, such as Prosecco.
