The-Negroni-A-Love-Affair-with-a-Classic-Cocktail-2

While we love a Manhattan, Old-Fashioned, Margarita, Painkiller, Boulevardier or Martini, it’s hard to deny the simplicity, ubiquity and sheer beloved nature of the Negroni. As the story goes, “a century ago, the cocktail achieved perfection when, according to legend, Count Camillo Negroni asked his bartender in Florence to stiffen an Americano by replacing the soda water with gin.” The rest is, as they say, history. With the super simple 1:1:1 ratio of Campari, sweet vermouth and gin, this cocktail is the perfect balance of bitter and sweet with just a touch of an aura of sophistication. We might love the Boulevardier just a little bit more because it uses whiskey instead of gin, but that’s not the case for author Matt Hranek who wrote this entire book dedicated to his favorite drink. With a curated collection of recipes that run the gamut from the classic through dozens of variations, deviations, and delicious reinterpretations, The Negroni: A Love Affair with a Classic Cocktail has everything you need to make the most classic cocktail of all time.
