Stir and serve on the rocks with an orange twist. A Negroni is a great option for a cocktail before a really big meal. It comes from the Latin word which means to open. So it's really something to stimulate the appetite. It comes from Italy and it utilizes Campari as one of its major ingredients, which is a bitter liqueur. So I'll get to that in a minute. I'm going to start with one and a half ounces of gin. I like to use a little more gin than in some recipes. Sometimes you see one ounce of gin. I really like that juniper flavor to punch through there. Now we're going to use sweet vermouth, a whole ounce of sweet vermouth. Then one ounce of Campari. A whole ounce of Campari sounds like a lot. If you've ever tasted it it is pretty bitter, but somehow the gin, vermouth and campari, just create something that is so much greater than the sum of its parts. Every time I make one I feel like it shouldn't work as well as it does, but it is a really extraordinary drink. And bitterness in cocktails is something that's really, really great. In food it's often thought of as a negative thing. You don't want something to be too bitter, but in drinks it's very applicable and much more pleasant. So if you're nervous about something being bitter, because you've had a bad experience, say like bitter chocolate or something, try a Negroni and I think you'll be surprised. So we're going to add some ice. We're going to stir this because it's all alcoholic ingredients. No need to shake anything. And I'm going to serve this on the rocks. I think that extra dilution really helps bring out some of those more complex flavors from the Campari and the vermouth. Lots of spice, herbs, botanical's. You know they used to sort of think of alcohol as having medicinal properties, especially in Italy and it really does sort of help settle your stomach. It's actually not a bad drink after your meal, too. It's a nice bookend for a really big dinner. Another really great thing about this drink is that unlike a Manhattan or a Martini, it's not as strong because the campari and the sweet vermouth are lower in alcohol. So it's still stiff, but it doesn't quite pack the same wallop that a martini does. Okay, so let's get our frozen rocks glass from the freezer and if you can. get those ice cube trays that make the perfect cube ice. It's really great for stirred cocktails like this one. Because they're so big they don't melt quite as fast and water down your drink too much. Okay, it's so beautiful. And for a finishing touch we're going to garnish this with a twist of orange, just to further bring out those beautiful aromatic notes. So just squeeze the oils over the top, again with the white part of the orange peel facing you, and then squeezing the oils over the top. And that is how you make a classic Negroni.

No bitters? Negroni is supposedly presumed to be another version of americano, that's why it's called africanoamericano. No soda.

Can you make this with whiskey instead of campari?

you can use whiskey instead of gin, making it a Boulevardier

Cheers for the video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you ever tried - Chireetler Calories Enemy Rule (google it)? It is a good exclusive product for discovering the secret recipes from restaurants without the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cousin after many years got astronomical results with it.

I just had a negroni that was aged in an oak barrel for 6 months. The smell was strong but the taste was extremely smooth. It was my first time having a negroni
Michael Dodd (1 year ago)
I had a Negroni tonight, two actually. As well as a a Gin martini, and something called a Millennial at my local watering hole. The Negroni was a bit too bitter for me.

sorry but the classic one is 1-1-1 so there is nothing classic about yours at all.

I'm afraid to spend 32 bucks on Campari and finding out I hate Negronis
Pip (3 months ago)
Go to a few swank hotels & try a few from various places, then decide. Most places I've found don't know how to make it well. Fortunately, I was introduced to an excellent recipe. But had I been served one of the bad ones first I'd have been put off forever. I like mine: 1 part good Gin, 1 part sweet Vermouth, and 1/2 part (maybe even 1/4) Campari, on the rocks, with a twist of lemon or orange, and soda on the side. Mmmm. Bellissimo!!! PS Maybe start easy w/ the Campari as it has a very particular taste, then increase ♥

Order one at a bar then

Damn. Campari is 32 bucks in the US? I got it for less than 10 euros 😂

I reccomend to go find somewhere where you can try a Negroni to see if you like it (like a bar or a friend's house)

it's not a bad drink after a meal either...

The first cocktail 007 ordered in Casino Royale, back in 1953. Thanks for the post.
Kris9kris (1 month ago)
I think it is the Americano, which is basically a Negroni eschewing the gin and diluting it with soda water - it even predates the creation of the Negroni if I recall correctly. James Bond does order a Negroni however in the Fleming short story 'Risico'.
Marcos Gomes (5 months ago)
wouldnt that be a vesper martini? it doesnt take vermouth nor campari
Cypeq (2 years ago)
It's one of this bar magic drinks... where supposedly unmatching flavours combined result in something amazing. I recommend classic bold london dry gin for this... as it indeed must punch it's way out.

If your channel was as paid type I swear I will be subscribe to you.. You deserve it.. Keep it up please
Natalie H (3 years ago)
Negroni does not mean "to open" in Latin- as far as anyone knows it's just the last name of an Italian guy who made the cocktail up.
ringinreturn1 (1 year ago)
he definitely meant aperitivo... if you didn't realize that, that you are a moron and i guarantee that he knows that.

Natalie Hanson congratulations. You found a mistake in this free video tip. When are you sharing yours so we can validate every word you say?
Fenryr Greyback (2 years ago)
Absolutely, I hate this sort of mistakes because anyone with wikipedia can avoid them.

Also, I own a basic vegetable peeler [not the "Y" type but the type Tom is using] and while it does succeed at getting a nice, wide peel off of my citrus fruits, the edges tend to be jaggy and not straight and uniform. What brand or type of vegetable should I invest that alleviates this problem?
Cypeq (2 years ago)
@grizzlytomahawk only way to do it if you can't peel properly with a knife or a tool.
Cypeq (2 years ago)
you can always peel it as it goes then fix it up with knife genius.

@Phil Yanov Brand recommendations?
Phil Yanov (3 years ago)
Get a sharp one.
grizzlytomahawk (3 years ago)
Does anyone have a guess as to how big his cocktail stirring glass is? I own a steel 3 piece shaker but I'd love to invest in a classic glass and strainer.
grizzlytomahawk (3 years ago)
Thanks, Venom. I really like the look of that glass + spoon but I actually recently started using a 12-ounce Pyrex glass and a chopstick for my stirred cocktails and the strainer off of my cobbler shaker to strain! It works just fine and I paid less than $10 for the whole setup.
Venom101002 (3 years ago)
+grizzlytomahawk His looks exactly like mine, which is 500 ml. (16.9 ounces) I got mine from Amazon. They also have larger sizes available.
marcelo chasi (4 years ago)
That is a variation of a "camparinette" sr not a negroni
tom jens (1 year ago)
How so? This is the exact recipe for negroni that IBA or wikipedia states.
Sol Evertere (3 years ago)
+marcelo chasi What you imply is partially correct. This specific version is also known as a camparinette, althought that is usually not strained over ice. But it is in fact a negroni. You will find various recipes of the negroni, which call for a splash of carbonated water. If we believe Harry Craddock, this is simply optional.
Norberto Perez (4 years ago)
The ice was melting from the first cup so he added cold fresh ice to a fresh glass any bartender would know that
Andrew Seiler (4 years ago)
Ummm the drink is named after a person- Count Negroni
Roman Delamare (8 days ago)
THANK YOU ! That cocktail is named after Count Negroni who asked for something stronger than soda water in his Americano Cocktail (Campari + sweet vermouth)... It was in Florence, Italy. Like 100 years ago.
Don Kemp (2 months ago)
Yeah, and Count Negroni liked to start with these. ;)

Apparently he meant to say "aperitivo".
Chris Dixon (2 years ago)
Yea he messed up, a Negroni is an apéritif. Apéritifs and digestifs are drinks, typically alcoholic, that are normally served before (apéritif) or after (digestif) a meal. An apéritif is an alcoholic beverage usually served before a meal to stimulate the appetite, and is therefore usually dry rather than sweet.{Wikipedia} Open in Italian is aprire, so you can see how apertifs are ment to open you up.

MrAndri19 (4 years ago)
negroni is not a latin word, maybe he intended aperitivo which means "the thing which opens/starts"
CaptainBeetheart (1 month ago)

MrAndri19 Aperitivo means an opener or sth like that.

Beautifull video but forget a crucial ingredient for perfect negroni.. The garnish is not a peel but is a slice of orange, Is the little bit of juice that makes it a perfect smooth combination, i alwais squeeze it, trust me and try it!
Aquaman Hasnat (4 years ago)
I didn't get this, he stirs them in ice and then pours it into ice again. What is the point ?

Jonathan Morse, basic geometry :) Take one big cube of ice. Now imagine that cube cut in half. Same amount of ice, but more surface area (the part where it is cut).
ALC0LITE (3 years ago)
The ice isn't technically larger. If you used the same amount of ice for two drinks but one was a bunch of average ice cubes and the other was one large puck, there would be less surface area in the bigger ice cube.
Jonathan Morse (3 years ago)
How in the hell does something larger have less surface area?
Danny B (5 years ago)
Aperol can be subbed for Campari for those that want a drink that is less bitter. The only sacrifice is the drink is slightly weaker in alcohol content.
