Magnificent Bartender: Negroni
We're falling behind on mixing instructions for our Cocktail Color Changing Guide, but better late than never we say, especially when it involves getting hammered in style. Up now: the Negroni, both in Poor Bastard and Magnificent Bastard versions.









Poor Bastard - Negroni

2 parts everyday gin (Seagram's Extra Dry)

1 part Campari

1 part sweet vermouth

Throw all these into a low ball glass with a bunch of ice, stir it up and toss on a slice or wedge of an orange.

MB - Negroni

5 parts Plymouth gin

2 parts Campari

1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup

1 part sweet vermouth

1 part dry vermouth

2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

POURCAST

Sidecar

  • 2 parts Germain-Robin Craft Method brandy
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 1 part fresh lemon juice

Lightly shake with ice, then pour into a ice-filled rocks glass. Based on your tastes, brandy choice, and strength of the lemon juice, you should adjust the Cointreau and lemon juice to find proper balance.
