Aperol Negroni

Aperol Negroni

If you’re hesitant about whether you like the Aperol Negroni at first, don’t be. Let the cocktail sit for a few minutes, so the flavors and aromas settle. Then take a few more sips and wait. Soon you’ll start to taste the various flavors each ingredient adds and respect the drink for what it is. A quick trip to Italy in a blazon-orange glass.

The Negroni

The Negroni

The Negroni is a classic “spirit-forward” Italian cocktail. The drink’s a popular apéritif: a drink that’s served before a meal to help stimulate an appetite. It’s quite easy to make, you’ll need three basic ingredients: equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth…finish with an orange garnish. 

The French 75

The French 75

The French 75 is the perfect combination of gin, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, and simple syrup…nicely topped with a bubbly layer of champagne. The cocktail’s surprisingly similar to the Tom Collins, except the French 75 replaces club soda with sparkling wine.
