  • Perhaps my all time fave. 5-stars for a version with mezcal instead of tequila and equal parts mezcal (del Maguey Vida is good), vermouth (perfect), and Gran Classico.
  • Per commented suggestions, switched to mezcal and did equal parts with the split vermouth and Campari. A nice negroni variant, more accessible than I expected. — ★★★★
  • Re Aperol variation: Merely OK. Seems like too much tequila. My tastes have changed. Revisit. — ★★★

I had this first at Brick & Mortar in Cambridge, Massachusetts (Misty Kalkofen's place) but it was mezcal instead of tequila and it was 1:1:1 mezcal, vermouth (perfect as here), and campari.

I make the mezcal version of this at home with Gran Classico instead of Campari and it is among my very favorite cocktails in this modified form.
