A Spontaneous Libation for your Consideration

From the Knowledge Vault

The Flight of the Negroni

The Negroni is indomitable. Attack it with skewed ratios, and it rallies. Violate the ingredients, and it stubbornly persists. I can’t think of another drink that you can screw up so thoroughly and still enjoy the result.

This history of the Negroni is disputed, but probably dates to 1919, where the Americano was stiffened by substituting gin for the soda water. Regardless of exactly who created the drink and when, the Negroni is the King of bitter cocktails. If you spy a bottle of Campari on the backbar, the bartender probably knows how to make a Negroni.

    Ran out of Pimms on the second iteration - subbed in Aperol. Worked like a champ!

    Also works with Irish instead of Scotch: we call that a De Chineal Maith (Irish for “of a good nature”)
    Also works with Tennessee Sour Mash instead of Scotch: we call that variation a Good Lookin’

    This doesn't seem quite there yet. I assumed whiskey with a 'e' didn't mean Scotch so used Evan Williams bourbon. To me it's a little flat and metallic - some expressed orange zest helped. Maybe reduce the absinthe and go for a non-Punt vermouth?

  • Re The Hallelujah, 5 days ago drinkingandthinking commented:

    It's okay but basically just tastes like the ingredients rather than a carefully balanced cocktail.

  • Re The Bloodborne of Beverages, 5 days 19 hours ago M.grandiflora commented:

    Love everything about this drink. Perfectly balanced.
