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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
