Negroni and the Goat
The chef Stephanie Izard created this drink as the June 2014 Negroni of the Month for the restaurant Nostrana, in Portland, Ore. The name is a reference to the Chicago restaurant Girl & the Goat, where Ms. Izard is the executive chef. The substitution of Aperol for Campari makes for a gentler drink, while the addition of Averna, a Sicilian amaro, lends a sturdy bottom note.
