Negroni Cocktail Recipe | west elm + The Liquor Cabinet

Unlike Americans, Europeans never had to improvise muffling devices for terrible alcohol as The States did during prohibition. As a result, European cocktails have typically taken a back seat to American ones — but the Negroni is one of the great exceptions. Almost as easy to make as it is delicious, the equal parts gin, vermouth, and campari mix provide a bitter, sweet, and all around perfectly boozy drink. You’ll know exactly what we’re talking about as soon as you take that first sip. Enjoy!

Serves 1

    1 oz. Plymouth Gin

    1 oz. Carpano Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth

    1 oz. Campari

    Orange twist

    Cubed ice (optional)

Bar Tools


    Mixing glass

    Julep strainer

    Stirring spoon

    Rocks or Coupe glass

    Ice, for mixing

Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing glass and add ice.

Stir 25-35 times.

I exclusively drank Aperol Spritz and Negronis while in Milan last week. Yummy.
