The bartender Joaquín Simó created this funky rum twist on the classic Negroni formula while working at Death & Co, a popular New York cocktail bar. According to Mr. Simó, Carpano Antica vermouth possesses enough strength of flavor to stand up to the powerful Smith & Cross, an overproof, pot-stilled Jamaican rum.
