I'm surprised there have not

 

I'm surprised there have not been any comments about the "Autumn Negroni," given a 5 rating by four raters. That says something about the drink--namely that those who enjoy a Negroni style cocktail will surly enjoy this drink. The gin, along with the Campari, and the Fernet-Branca control where this drink is going. I, personally, enjoy Negroni-style drinks, and this drink is no exception. I rated it a 4, but with a little arm twisting, I'd jack it up to 4.5. Personally, I love this drink.

Adventuresome drinkers will, I believe, also find this an enjoyable cocktail, as long as they understand the effects of Campari and Fernet-Branca on a cocktail. Put your toes into the water, and give it a try! You have, I believe, more to gain than to lose. Enjoy but drink responsibly!

Nice end of summer cocktail.

Nice end of summer cocktail.
I kept thinking that I wanted to work in an apple note somehow as well - for autumn. Apart from eating apple slices as we drank this.

I don't get all the 5 star

I don't get all the 5 star ratings. I mean, it's a well crafted Negroni, and it's carefully balanced drink and all, but I just don't see it as an all encompassing 5 star cocktail. Full disclosure: I hate gin, so maybe it's a 4 star for everyone else...
