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.
Stir all ingredients with ice until well chilled. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
