Negroni Pocket Cocktail

R. Ward & Negroni: Pocket Cocktail

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.

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?
