Negroni Bianco

Negroni Bianco cocktail with gin, Cocchi Americano, blanc vermouth and grapefruit bitters

Feeling left out of the Negroni craze because you can’t get over the hyper-bitter flavor of Campari? It’s all the rage with the cocktail elite these days, but we feel for drinkers who just can’t get on board with a spirit that, to some, tastes more like a cleaning solution than a citrus apéritif.

Fear not – there’s still space for bitter-haters at the cool kids’ table, thanks to this fantastic Negroni Bianco recipe from Joe Campanale at Fausto in Brooklyn.

Strong and barely-bitter, the Negroni Bianco swaps out Campari for Cocchi Americano, a complex, fragrant white wine apéritif. Lillet Blanc is just as good, if a touch sweeter. A couple dashes of grapefruit bitters and a twist of orange peel helps the drink retain a bit of the Negroni’s citrus character.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
