Nostrana, an Italian restaurant in Portland, Ore., has offered a Negroni of the Month since 2010, all original creations, some of them quite odd (squid ink Negroni, anyone?). But the house Negroni follows classic lines, using equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari.
- Serves: 1 person
- 1ounce gin, preferably Bombay Dry
- 1ounce sweet vermouth, preferably Cinzano Rosso
- 1ounce Campari
- Orange twist
Step 1Combine all liquid ingredients with ice in a mixing glass and stir until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Squeeze orange twist over drink and slip into glass.
