Over 30 classic recipes and modern twists for Italy's most iconic cocktail, the Negroni.
The Negroni has been a favorite with discerning cocktail drinkers for over a century but has perhaps never been as popular as it is today. What started off as a simple, equal-parts, three-ingredient cocktail (campari, gin, vermouth) has become a global sensation. Included here are recipes for classic Negronis from straight-up over ice to a sparkling aperitivo spritz. This basic formula is then played with in endless ways with Negronis designed for different seasons; bright and citrusy summer versions; cozier, spiced winter drinks; and celebratory cocktails for special occasions. These exciting variations make use of both dry, sweet, and aged vermouths, along with ports and sherries, and some truly experimental non-gin negronis (made using bourbon, rum or even mezcal) really open up the playing field!
“Beautifully photographed by Alex Luck, the recipes are simple and easy-to-follow. Whether you’re enjoying a before-dinner drink or sipping a cocktail with friends, the book offers creative options for putting a new spin on Italy’s classic drink.” – Tastes of Italia
