1⁄2 oz Scotch
1⁄2 oz Apple brandy (Aged such as a VS Calvados or Laird's Bonded)
1 oz Campari
3⁄4 oz Dry vermouth
1⁄4 oz Maple syrup
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with an orange twist.


I was inspired by a recent drink with maple syrup to wonder what it would do in a Negroni? The maple made me think of apple brandy and Scotch instead of gin, and I used dry vermouth since the maple provided all the sweetness needed.

  • Great drink. Used Dewars and Mt. Defiance Apple Brandy. Would love to try with different scotch. Maybe sub Aperol and see how that turns out too. — ★★★★★
