Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
Elderflower works great with both Cynar and Campari, and the grapefruit oil helps to draw the fruitier notes of it out.
I was tinkering around with Negroni variations for a request from an upcoming wedding held at Loyal Nine. I was inspired by Eeyore's Requiem to include other liqueurs in the mix, but I did not want it to be as extreme as Toby Maloney's neo-classic with Campari being the largest component. Therefore, I stuck with the equal parts gin, liqueur, and vermouth ratio. For a name, I kept the Winnie the Pooh theme and decided on Piglet's Lament; one of Piglet's laments in Winnie the Pooh is "It is hard to be brave when you're only a Very Small Animal."
