  • Negroni variant
  • As mentioned by others, a very tasty negroni variant. Used a charred jalapeno with good success.
  • This ‘kitchen sink’ variant of a Negroni is wonderful to drink, but laborious to build. My wife coined the drink, “a Negroni with a tutu”, which may be more profound than I can currently fathom. — ★★★★★
  • Very good. Nicely bitter; more buoyant than a Manhattan, but more body than a Negroni. Didn't have a habanero, so used a jalapeño instead. The char worked well.
  • Very nice - has Manhattan-like flavor with a different herbal depth from the gin. 4.5

This is a wonderful, full- flavored drink--even without the charred habanero. For the orange bitters, I used Fee Bros.' gin barrel-aged orange bitters. I rated the "Baboso" at 4.5. With the charred habanero, it might have been a 5.0! 

Given all of the ingredients, perhaps a better name for this libation is "Mulligan stew."
