Negroni Dolce Cocktail

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Fill a chilled cocktail shaker 3/4-full with ice; add gin, orange aperitif, vermouth, and simple syrup and stir. Strain drink into a martini glass.
  2. Squeeze the orange peel over the drink and drop into the glass.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Angostura bitters can be added as well for a different flavor. This drink should not be shaken.
  • Another option for the garnish is to carefully light a match and hold over the glass while squeezing the peel into the drink. Blow out the flame, discard match, and drop peel into the drink.

Note: be sure to stir and not shake this drink. Shaking will cause the drink to become cloudy and lessen the flavors.

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...

Love Campari, love vermouth!! I made this with vodka and less simple syrup. It's good!!

Adding the simple syrup really ruined it. Too sweet....not for me.
