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.
