The Pocket Cocktail
In this series, we pair one of unique print pocket squares with a delicious cocktail. One starts a conversation, the other keeps it going. Today’s edition is shared with us by TuxedoNo2, and is probably your local bartender’s drink of choice: the bitter Negroni.
[inspired by our R. Ward pocket square]
It’s a dynamic sip, with fruitiness from the campari, sweetness from the vermouth, and botanicals from the gin. Perhaps most impressively, it’s darn easy to make.
- 1oz gin
- 1oz campari
- 1oz sweet vermouth
- grapefruit peel or orange peel for garnish
Combine all ingredients with ice and stir. Then, strain into an old fashioned over ice, and garnish with the citrus peel.
Notes: It’s bitter, making it both challenging to beginners and endlessly drinkable to fans.
Who will you enjoy this cocktail with this evening?
