Rosé Negroni

Rosé Negroni with rosé wine, Cocchi Rosa, Campari, grapefruit bitters, and sparkling rosé

The Rosé Negroni, from Tyler Fry at Spilt Milk in Chicago, is a brilliant Negroni riff that replaces the standard gin with two types of rosé wine and a rosé wine apéritif. Despite not actually having any true rose ingredients, it really does leave a mild aftertaste of rose petals, along with a touch of bitterness and effervescence.

Fry calls for Campari, one of the less-sweet types of bitter citrus apéritif. We’ve also tried it with Aperol, and it’s just as lovely.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
