Negroni - Camparinette
Don't yell at me. This drinks is hard to pin down.
- 1 Ounce Gin
- 1 Ounce Campari
- 1 Ounce Sweet Vermouth
Built in an old fashioned glass with cube ice, served with flamed orange peel.
Here are the requirements:
- It is cold.
- It contains gin, Campari, and vermouth.
- It contains orange peel somehow.
- It is not shaken.
After that, things get murkey.
I have seen: 1.25 ounces gin, 1 ounce Campari, .75 ounces vermouth. I have seen 2 ounces gin, 1 ounce Campari, 1 ounce vermouth.
I very much enjoy Carpano Antiquea Formula for the vermouth. I have also seen Punt e Mes subbing in for the standard sweet vermouth.
I have seen this built in a glass with ice. I have seen this stirred and strained, served up. I have seen this stirred and strained - served on large ice in an old fashioned glass. I have seen this shaken. Please do not shake this drink.
I have seen a flamed orange peel, with an additional orange peel garnish. I have seen just an orange peel garnish. I have seen (but do not recommend) an orange wedge garnish. I have seen orange bitters.
The truth of the matter is, most every way you make it - it is delicious.
A heavier variation of the Americano developed in the early 20th century.
