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 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.

Since then, the Bourbon Old Fashioned has taken on a life of its own, much to the delight of whiskey drinkers’ abound.
