The Negroni cocktail is a drink that the palate has to learn to like. Adding simple syrup to the drink buffers some of the bitterness. Some folks enjoy adding a couple of ounces of club soda as well.

Funny thing is that I don't like Campari or Gin on their own but combined together with vermouth and the drink becomes one of my favourite drinks. Did not add simple syrup as I like the slightly bitter taste. Use two slices of orange and no other fruit works. Read More
