Negroni | Cocktail Party

Negroni

Negroni cocktail with gin, Campari and sweet vermouth

Cocktail snobs have a bad habit of using the Negroni as the threshold through which all drinkers must pass before they can be considered true connoisseurs. There’s an element of truth to this view; the balance of flavors requires an experienced tongue to appreciate. But make no mistake – it is a very bitter drink, and it’s not for everyone.

Some folks have a genetic variation which allows them to taste bitter compounds, while other people don’t. Those who can are called “supertasters,” and it’s likely that no amount of epicurean taste-acquiring can make this drink palatable to those so afflicted.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build in an ice-filled rocks glass – the order doesn’t matter. Just give it a stir and garnish with an orange twist.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
