Classic Negroni + Chinotto Negroni

We were so excited for Negroni Week that we thought we’d share not one, but two cocktail recipes with you this week!  The Classic Negroni (of course) plus a little variation that we’re calling the Chinotto Negroni. Chinotto, as it is known in Italy, is a small bitter citrus fruit similar to an orange. Adding a splash, along with the chocolate bitters, will give your Negroni a little extra depth and richness. Cin cin!

Classic Negroni
makes 1 drink

1 oz gin
1 oz Campari
1 oz sweet vermouth
Orange peel, for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass with ice and garnish with the orange peel.

Chinotto Negroni
makes 1 drink

1 1/2 oz Cinzano 1757 Rosso vermouth
3/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz gin
1 oz Chinotto soda*
3 dashes chocolate bitters
Orange peel and brandied cherry, for garnish

Combine the vermouth, Campari, and gin in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass with ice, top with the soda, and stir. Garnish with the orange peel and cherry.

*A number of Italian companies make chinotto soda, but in the US it's easiest to come by the one made by San Pellegrino.
