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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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.
