From other users
  • Re Aperol variation: Merely OK. Seems like too much tequila. My tastes have changed. Revisit. — ☆☆☆
  • 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. — ☆☆☆☆
  • 5-stars for a version with mezcal instead of tequila and equal parts mezcal (del Maguey Vida is good), vermouth (perfect), and campari. — ☆☆☆☆☆

I had this first at Brick &

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.
