Classic Negroni Cocktail Recipe

The classic Negroni cocktail is a timeless drink that has grown more popular over the last few years. The Negroni cocktail was created over one hundred years ago, and since that creation, barmen across the world have chapped and changed the original Negroni recipe to create variations or 'riffs' as they are known. There are numerous ways to tweak the Negroni cocktail with endless Gin and Vermouth types to try as well. Campari is almost always the consistent ingredient in a Negroni cocktail, though apart from the White Negroni, which was created in the early 2000s. 

 

So then, what is the Classic Negroni? Firstly you will need to pick the main base ingredients, which are Gin and Vermouth. The key to making a great Negroni is finding a great Gin and Vermouth pairing that compliments, instead of overpowers, the bitter and bold flavors of the Negroni. Once you find the winning combination, then you'll have a great drink, so don't be afraid to experiment with lots of different varieties.
