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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
