  • I really like this. I used Rhubarb bitters. Thanks for the tip — ★★★★★
  • I favor the sweet vermouth version over a Punt e Mes substitution. Three drops of rhubarb bitters makes this great. — ★★★★

My absolute favorite is the Unusual Negroni.

I know this variant (substituting Aperol for Campari) as a Contessa.


^ The most persuasive sources say that the Contessa also involves a swap of dry vermouth for sweet.
