From other users
  • Perfectly balanced with Plymouth gin and Martini bianco — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • This is a nice drink! I've made w/ dif amounts of gin from .5 to 1.5 and all good. I've always made with dry vermouth, but will get some blanc to properly try. — ☆☆☆☆
  • Not sure why the classic negroni proportions are skewed to be so gin-heavy- I like much more with a full ounce of vermouth and gran classico — ☆☆☆☆

<br />A lovely drink, but even more so than one of my favorite cocktails, the traditional Negroni. Why so? The use of Gran Classico instead of Campari. Gran Classico gives a bitterness that is a hallmark of the Negroni, only less so. This is the cocktail of choice, I believe, for those who would like a less bitter Negroni-syle cocktail. But don't sell short the Dolin Blanco, which has a sweetness to it, but less than the sweet vermouth used in the traditional Negroni.

Consequently, the Negroni d'Or deserves a good gin, one wiith a nice bouquet. Tanqueray Ten, Beefeater 24, and Citadelle come to mind. Without the Campari and sweet vermouth, the gin is able to peek its head out a little more and make its presence known. This is truly a Negroni of gold!
